Following on from a successful transport drop-in event at the Galashiels travel interchange, Hawick bus users will get their chance to give their views at a similar meeting next month.

As part of Scottish Borders Council’s ongoing consultation on bus services in the Borders, the Galashiels event was well attended, with lots of bus passengers giving their views.

The council’s strategic transport services manager, Timothy Stephenson, said: “We are holding another drop-in event in Hawick to chat about transport issues. Greig Mackay from Bus Users Scotland is hosting the event along with John Dellow, our team leader for transport services, at Hawick Town Hallk on Friday, July 22, from 10am to 1pm.”

An invite has also been sent to Andy Maybury, of Hawick Community Council, who presented a petition about the 120 bus service between Hawick and Jedburgh to the council in December.
