“I’m very happy with my bus service. I get to do the post, do a bit of shopping, have lunch with my brother and his wife in town and visit some old friends who can’t get out very much. I love the fun on the bus and the stories that I hear from the other passengers. You’ll always hear something going on that you didn’t know about. The drivers are very friendly and always helpful” – Theresa.
