Quedgeley Park and Ride bus service on verge of collapse due to loss of funding

In March it was announced that the Waterwell Park and Ride bus scheme was being reduced and would not now take them to Barnwood Business Centre.

Bennetts Coaches who operate the Service have been told they will no longer be subsidised and this is vital for keeping the service running.

It is likely that the route 66 Bus Service will be diverted by Stagecoach. The 66 Bus takes people from Stroud and the Kingsway area already.

Customers are now disappointed that the scheme will no longer shuttle them between Quedgeley and Gloucester but now travel through the Kingsway area as well, adding to the journey time, the cost is also expected to rise.

Locals have insisted that the current Scheme is extremely successful and are hoping the scheme will remain in its current form.
