DISABLED and elderly bus passengers in Bolton are expected to be hit by changes to the ‘Ring and Ride’ accessible transport service.

The minibus service of Transport for Greater Manchester (TFGM), open to anyone who has problems using public transport, will stop the dedicated cross boundary service and instead only offer travel of up to six miles.

However distances of more than six miles to the nearest hospital, town centre or accessible public transport facility will still be considered.

Cllr David Chadwick, Bolton’s representative on TfGM, said for the year 2012 to 2013 the organisation spent £5.4 million on the service, which was used for 882,000 journeys across Greater Manchester.

He stressed TfGM was looking to achieve a ‘balance’ between need and cost.

Cllr Chadwick added: “The vast majority of people who use the service only travel three miles or less, but there may be some people who are affected.

“Lancashire County Council got rid of their Ring and Ride service, and we won’t do that.”

Bernard Rowen, managing director of Greater Manchester Accessible Transport Limited, which operates Ring and Ride said despite the changes they are still committed to improving the service.

He added: “Now that we’ve upgraded our booking systems we have been able to merge our cross boundary service with the main service, which means passengers will be able to travel for up to six miles into neighbouring districts during much longer operating hours.”

All trips can be booked through one call centre phone number between 8am and 4pm, Monday to Friday, from up to seven days in advance to one hour before.

Information about Ring and Ride services is available at www.tfgm.com/ringandride or by calling 0845 688 4933.

Again this has been reported wrong!!!

Up until 27th April the dedicated Ring & Ride, as subsidised by TfGM, never used to cross the boundary, as that would be encroaching on the services of other Ring & Ride schemes operated by other Transport bodies (such as Lancashire County Council), but thanks to a slight relaxation in the law it now means that they can offer cross boundary services of up to 6 miles!!!!!

54 million pounds is an awful lot of money being spent on just 882 passengers. C'mon O Righteous One tell us how much it equates to for each person using the ring and ride.
Oh! hang on a minute, I think it comes to £6.122.00....give or take a few pence.That's six thousand one hundred and twenty two pounds per passenger in old money.but I'm sure if I have got the figures wrong someone will correct me.
The TFGM would be quids in if they bought a decent second hand car for each of these people instead of spending so much money. Someone somewhere is getting their figures wrong if they continue to spend this kind of money. The ring and ride companies must be making a mint every time !!

Those figures are completely way-off - as I said the report is completely incorrect.

Ring and Ride never used to do cross-boundary services. - that is a fact!

That quote is actually taken from GMATL which encompasses various forms of door to door travel including Ring & Ride.

As it is it was another "department" that dealt with the Cross Boundary operations but now that the rules have been relaxed they have merged it with R&R to save money!

£6,000 per person! Outrageous. It would cost a fraction of that to provide taxis for the 882 passengers. Assuming of course that Cllr Chadwick knows what he's talking about.

Because there could have been someone on and they got off before you saw it, or someone could have got on it after you had seen it. You have to remember that passengers can get on or off a bus at any bus stop and just do not use it to get from Bolton town centre and get off at its terminus!!!!

I know lets get rid of all evening and Sunday buses and lets see where this country ends up? How much would the fares on private hires, and taxis,go up by as they would have the monopoly? How many companies, that rely on the evening economy, would close because people would not be able to get to the places? How many people would end up being unemployed because they wouldn't need as many bus drivers, wouldn't need as many buses so mechanics and engineers and coach builders would be in less demand. How much would fuel go up by as not as much would be needed and as such less produced and less means more expensive, which then has a knock on effect with commodity prices.... See the chain of events, just by one small decision!!!

Loose =
1. free or released from fastening or attachment: a loose end.
2. free from anything that binds or restrains; unfettered: loose cats prowling around in alleyways at night.
3. uncombined, as a chemical element.
4. not bound together: to wear one's hair loose.
5. not put up in a package or other container: loose mushrooms.

Lose =
1. to come to be without (something in one's possession or care), through accident, theft, etc., so that there is little or no prospect of recovery: I'm sure I've merely misplaced my hat, not lost it.
2. to fail inadvertently to retain (something) in such a way that it cannot be immediately recovered: I just lost a dime under this sofa.
3. to suffer the deprivation of: to lose one's job; to lose one's life.
4. to be bereaved of by death: to lose a sister.
5. to fail to keep, preserve, or maintain: to lose one's balance; to lose one's figure.

I am seeing this seeing misspelling of "lose" more and more frequently, even on graffiti!!!

Maybe if people took note of the news report that has appeared in the last 12 hours about children not being able to use the English language at school - is that post, by KW1990, a good example?

Loose =
1. free or released from fastening or attachment: a loose end.
2. free from anything that binds or restrains; unfettered: loose cats prowling around in alleyways at night.
3. uncombined, as a chemical element.
4. not bound together: to wear one's hair loose.
5. not put up in a package or other container: loose mushrooms.

Lose =
1. to come to be without (something in one's possession or care), through accident, theft, etc., so that there is little or no prospect of recovery: I'm sure I've merely misplaced my hat, not lost it.
2. to fail inadvertently to retain (something) in such a way that it cannot be immediately recovered: I just lost a dime under this sofa.
3. to suffer the deprivation of: to lose one's job; to lose one's life.
4. to be bereaved of by death: to lose a sister.
5. to fail to keep, preserve, or maintain: to lose one's balance; to lose one's figure.

I am seeing this seeing misspelling of "lose" more and more frequently, even on graffiti!!!

Maybe if people took note of the news report that has appeared in the last 12 hours about children not being able to use the English language at school - is that post, by KW1990, a good example?
Honestly who gives a sh1t you petty ****!

All that because i didn't reply, if i knew who you was i would **** through your letterbox.

You are a pethetic man.
KW1990, if you think that my post was because you didn't reply you then you seem to be up your on backside!!

I am not that bothered if you reply or not, but would like good spelling - I do allow for spelling mistakes to mistake lose and loose which many people are doing nowadays just because it is a long "o" and so people assume it should be "oo" then that is just poor and a very basic error!

what you like and what you get are two different things!

you are nothing but a troll and can't help but sway conversations elsewhere, you get yourself targeted then go running to mummy and daddy when you get the retaliation..

i suggest you alter your behavior! this is not a forum, it is simply to discuss and voice opinion on the original topic
