On the Road Again

After the vital number 19 bus service was cut from Thornhill, leaving many of our residents isolated from crucial facilities, months of meetings, negotiations, and petitions followed. Residents were determined to regain this service which they believed was a key part of community life.

Residents and Partners from Thornhill Community Voices (TCV) group took the lead on working to regain the vital bus service, meeting with representatives from each of the local bus operators and Southampton City Council to find a solution to this problem. Transportation was already difficult for many residents, we didn’t need the withdrawal of a vital service making things worse.

All this effort has paid off and we are now delighted to report that this key bus service has returned to Thornhill, thanks to Velvet, and all the dedicated individuals who worked so hard to make this happen.
