Following meetings with local councillors and First Bus CEO, James Freeman, the route of the No 9 will change on 9th January. The re-route will include an extended loop to allow residents to access shops and health care facilities.
The proposed change was identified by Jerome Thomas who made a strong case for the re-routing.
The need for the change was demonstrated to James Freeman when he attended the Neighbourhood Forum meeting where 171 people turned out to protest.
Councillors for Clifton and Clifton Down then met with James Freeman to press for change. Jerome’s eye for detail and innovative thinking, resulted in the suggestion which First Bus have been able to put in place.
