I have received the following information from Kevin Brock, one of the main campaigners to save the 620 bus route. Councillor Mark Aldred Labour Councillor for Atherleigh and Member of the Passenger Transport Authority has e-mailed him as follows:
At a recent meeting I managed to get the 620 back on on an hourly service
from Ashton town centre to Swan Lane Hindley for 9 months reviewed after 6 months. So let's hope everyone uses it so it continues.
This is excellent news for everybody who campaigned to keep this route alive and shows how people working together can change things.
We now need to run a Use it or Lose It campaign to make sure it does not disappear forever.
If anybody is interested in this please contact me.
