Have Your Say: Petition launched to save FreeBee bus

Have your say

A petition to save Sheffield’s free city centre bus service has been launched and has already attracted more than 1,000 signatures.

Valerie Wilson, aged 64, of Jedburgh Street, Wincobank, has been drumming up support for her campaign to save the FreeBee bus at the new Moor Market.

She says the decision to scrap the bus, which will end its services on Saturday, is ‘very bad timing’ because so many people use it to visit the market, which opened last November.

Valerie said: “There are a lot of people down here and they are all supporting me because they need the FreeBee bus to be kept on.

“People have got to make a stand. This is not going to be the end.”
