Service ‘running at a loss’ cut

first_imgThe Pickering Town Bus Service is to cease operating after Pickering-based operator, Hayesway Travel, decided it wasn’t commercially viable.The service is said to provide ‘a vital lifeline for regular users’, resulting in those regular users launching a petition calling on North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) and Ryedale MP Kevin Hollinrake to step in and ensure the service is maintained.Douglas Hayes of Hayesway Travel says: “We don’t want to make the cuts, but unfortunately the route is not commercially viable and we have been running it at a loss.”last_img
