Trevor Pagdin has written to PVA regarding the level of residents’ satisfaction with the number 48 bus service.
“It seems to me that the frequency of the buses here is very low, considering that the service links two rail stations and is the only route serving Prestwood. Also on weekday mornings the buses to Wycombe from the Village Hall are at 7:32 and 9:04. So it’s really only the 7:32 that can be used by people working in Wycombe, but that is also heavily used by schoolchildren. A similar problem occurs in the afternoon when the 48 leaves Wycombe at 14.20 and then there is a gap until 16.12. Also, why can we not have at least one electronic display, say at the Village Hall bus stop, to confirm when a bus is actually coming. We do seem to be the poor relations when it comes to a bus service. Perhaps this is a topic that the PVA would consider taking up with Arriva?”
