Bus protest success
by David Simister

HALSALL residents have been given a helping hand with a new bus service after the county council responded to a petition signed by village residents.

The local authority confirmed this week that it would subsidise a new bus service linking the village with Ormskirk, the 315, after 79 residents lent their names to a petition calling for better public transport links between Halsall, Haskayne, Barton and the market town.

County Councillor Malcolm Barron, the county council's lead member for buses, said: “We're glad to have been able to respond to calls for a direct link to Ormskirk from Halsall, Barton and Haskayne by introducing the 315 service as a 12-month trial from 1 November.

”The petition convinced us that there may be enough demand to support this service and I would encourage people to use it to ensure it makes enough money from fares to become sustainable in the long term.“

The bus will depart from Ormskirk Bus Station on Thursdays only - Ormskirk market day - at 10.20am and 1.05pm, calling into Halsall 10.42am and 1.18pm.
