Bus service amendments due to persistent vandalism leaves Patna with no service
Stagecoach issued the following statement.
As a result of persistent vandalism to our buses operating on the 52 route in Patna, we have taken the difficult decision that from Tuesday 28th November 2017 we will not be serving Main Street, Blaney Avenue, Whitehill Avenue, Carnshalloch Avenue and Dalharco Avenue. The last evening services to operate via these roads will be the 1740 departing from Ayr and the 1740 departing from Dalmellington.
We do understand this will cause inconvenience to our customers in Patna however the safety of our customers and drivers is our priority and we have had to take these measures in the interest of both public and staff safety to try and prevent further incidents of vandalism being carried out against our vehicles.
We are working with the Police to address this issue and would urge any witnesses to contact them directly.
