With the new £3m bus station underway does the town need a small independent bus company?

There are often complaints in Andover about the lack of bus services running on evenings or Sundays. The bus company covering the area (Stagecoach) would no doubt say that it is not financially viable.

We do have taxis into town for usually under £5.00 although this can mount up unless 2 or 3 of you can use it together. Also with the new Youth Pub Nights would it be useful to have transport available?

Maybe this is where a small and flexible bus company could come in to cover the shoppers from the edges of town on a Sunday and the restaurant goers during the week.

We are starting to get more shops in the town and with events like the Farmers Markets, maybe now is the time for Andover to start looking at alternatives.

What do you think? Would you use them? Let us know in the comments and you can also vote in the Poll.
