Meetings held with SPT and Stagecoach and alternative operators being sought.
Along with Cllrs Letford and Scally, we had a constructive meeting with Ronnie Park from SPT who listened carefully to both the identified community needs in terms of retaining the G1 and G2, as well as a number of potential service improvements which could make routes more attractive to potential alternative bus companies.
Today at the Scottish Parliament, I met with staff from Marie Curie to hear about their work and got behind the daffodil to lend my support to the Great Daffodil Appeal.
Last year they provided care and support for more than 7,400 people living with a terminal illness in Scotland.
The G1 and G2 bus services run from Maryhill and Kelvindale to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and will be terminated by Stagecoach on April 23 after they were deemed not "commercially viable". They are new services that have run for the past six months.
The two buses take residents directly to the new hospital. Along with SNP Councillors John Letford and Franny Scally, I have met Stagecoach, but they won't budge. Despite not being willing to reverse their decision, Stagecoach acknowledged there may be ways to drive up passenger numbers and retain an important transport link for communities in areas such as Wyndford and Kelvindale.
We will be meeting with SPT to work in partnership to find a solution when we meet with them next week.
I am inundated with messages from constituents saying how much they rely on the service. I would urge constituents to sign our community petition calling for the G1 and G2 services to continue.
