The Somerset Catch The Bus Campaign is being launched this week.
I hope this campaign will have your support.
Its aim is to promote the greater use of existing bus services throughout Somerset.
It links to the national Catch The Bus Week (July 4th – 10th), a campaign that is backed by the major national bus operators. We will be organising a number of events in Somerset.
The aim is to encourage everyone in Somerset to go by the bus as often as they can, most especially during Catch The Bus Week. We would therefore like to invite you, along with all your fellow Somerset County Councillors, to make an effort to catch the bus during that week ... and indeed to go by bus whenever and as often as you can.
The best way of protecting our existing bus services in Somerset is for everyone to use them more frequently.
So please do join us and show your support for buses in Somerset by simply replying to this email and type: “SUPPORT”. That confirms you will try and catch a Somerset bus at least once during Catch The Bus Week. (July 4th-10th)
We will be publishing a map on the Somerset Catch The Bus Campaign Facebook page showing all those Somerset Councillors and MPs who’ve emailed us to say they are supporting Somerset’s Catch The Bus Week. You can view the map by clicking on https://www.facebook.com/groups/SomersetCTBC/.
So do please email me now with the word “SUPPORT” so we can indicate that you are backing Somerset’s existing bus services and that you’ll be trying to use the bus during Catch The Bus Week.
