Ben protects south-east Ipswich bus services

When evening and weekend bus services were withdrawn in south-east Ipswich as a result of Suffolk County Council cost saving, many local residents turned to Ben for help. He quickly organised an open meeting in the Raven Pub to hear people’s concerns. The message was clear: the loss of services would make it hard for people coming home for work and people going out in the evenings.
Ben approached the County Council and the bus companies involved to represent people’s concerns and to try to find a solution.Thanks to Ben’s actions, Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Buses agreed a new timetable, providing two extra evening buses from Ipswich to Ravenswood.
