Government defends on-demand bus services

Tue, 19 Mar 2019

The Isle of Man government has defended plans to extend on-demand bus services to Jurby after local residents say the change could be "isolating".

Transport chiefs want to replace 14 scheduled services in the parish with door-to-door minibuses from 8 April, to increase the flexibility of bus times.

Ray Harmer MHK, Minister for Infrastructure has said the change would actually boost the number of people using buses.
