The G1 and G2 buses which service areas such as Wydford, Kelvindale, Maryhill and Firhill are being axed by Stagecoach. They connect communities as well as providing a link to the new Southern General Hospital.
I have met with Stagecoach, accompanied by local councillors John Letford and Franny Scally, and unfortunately Stagecoach have refused to consider continuing the service beyond 23 April. We have now written to Strathclyde Passenger Transport to request an urgent meeting to try and ensure that services can continue.
We have a number of suggestions as to how this can be sustained such as reducing the frequency of the service and route variation. Hopefully a solution can be found.
