‘If bus goes, I’ll have to go, too’

Being no longer able to drive, I chose to live in Denholm as there was a good bus service. Should the 120 bus go, then I’d have to go, too. Denholm and other areas between the Hawick, Jedburgh and Kelso will be left isolated.

As for the tourist train, Galashiels to Hawick X95 bus, Hawick to rest of Borders – this makes no sense.

And taxis are not an option for most pensioners or our many low-paid workers who depend on the bus.

Scottish Borders Council, think again.
