Dear All


As many people know, we've been uncertain what would happen with the 94A bus service which allows villagers to travel on the 'school bus' during term time only following the one-year trial period that began last July. The DVTG has just had notice from Thames Travel that the 94/94A will be continuing to operate until at least the end of March 2018. Our goal now is to help the bus route become commercially viable, so that when the next review occurs, we again keep our service.

The DVTG would like to thank all the residents of our villages who use the buses - and also all who have attended meetings about our bus services, sent in their views on the buses, and/or written to local politicians: it's been great to hear how important the bus is in people's lives and to get a sense of our residents' commitment to keeping vital services available for everyone.  

Please do keep using the bus - and if you aren't already using it, try it out! Even if you only use it once a month, you're still helping to maintain the service.

And please do also use the bus to Wallingford on a Friday and the Tesco bus on Mondays and Wednesdays.
