Residents using the 997 Route may recall when I won my campaign to get this service to replace the old 46 service some years ago it was a great improvement.
I am now as the Councillor Champion for this route putting on the pressure to improve this service again and have it become a Platinum standard service.
This would mean a better standard of bus. New buses with better seats and appearance, with Hi Fi facility and higher quality bus drivers. The limited stop and route would remain the same.
If I am successful and NX go with this route we should see new more comfortable buses later this year.
Roads in Oscott covered by this route are.
