Tiger 7 Bus Service
Yesterday evening Parish Councillors met with Wokingham Borough Councillors Stuart Munro and Pauline Jorgenson, Executive Member for Highways and Transport, and Andy Glencross, Assistant Director Highways & Transport, to discuss the situation regarding the cancelled Tiger 7 bus route which serves the Parish. WBC Councillors have already had discussions with their counterparts at Hampshire County Council.
Several options were discussed as potential interim measures but the Parish Council does not feel these would be satisfactory in the longer term and will be exploring alternative options.
Please note that the existing Tiger 7 bus service will cease to operate from Monday 17 January.
The Parish Council was not consulted and was not given prior notice of this decision by Reading Buses. Wokingham Borough Council raised an objection to their decision but has limited powers given the situation.
We will shortly be launching a survey of residents in the Parish to gain a better understanding of current and future public transport needs. We will continue to work with Wokingham Borough Council and other stakeholders with the aim of finding a more satisfactory longer term solution.
Further information will be provided when available.
