Save your local bus company - Rossendale Transport
Help us to save our local bus company. A meeting was held on Thursday 2nd April 2009 at Rossendale Transports head office in Haslingden to discuss the future of the company. The meeting was attended by the Chairman of the board, Head of Finance for Rossendale Borough Council, the Managing Director and Commercial Director for Rossendale Transport and of course many of the staff of Rossendale Transport. It was said in the meeting that Rossendale Borough Council will be testing the market to find out what Rossendale Transport is worth. The underlying message is that Rossendale Transport will be most likely sold in the near future which could result in over 200 job losses depending on who was to purchase the company. It could also result in many bus services being cut down or even withdrawn (including the County Rider Service) If you feel strongly about this then please lobby a Rossendale Borough councillor because ultimately they will have the final decision. Why not write a letter to the Rossendale Free Press or any other newspaper to voice your opinion. (Remember, we also operate in Bury, Rochdale, Bolton, Todmorden & Burnley to name a few) Lets not go down without a fight! Remember its your service, your bus, your route! All support welcome.
