Wiltshire to Bath RUH petition to save bus route
More than 1,700 people have signed a petition to save a bus service between Wiltshire and a hospital in Bath.
Patients and staff at the Royal United Hospital in Bath use the hopper service which Wiltshire Council said costs nearly £160,000 a year to run.
The petition is to be handed to the council, which has cut £130,000 from the route.
A motion calling for "this invaluable service" to continue will be put before the authority later.
Independent councillor Jeff Osborn, who proposed the motion, will ask the Conservative-run council to "do everything possible" to keep the service running.
