Improve Bus Service Provision for Evendons East and Wescott West School Children

We the undersigned petition Wokingham Borough Council to commission additional school bus transport for secondary school children living along the Finchampstead Road corridor, ensuring there is a school bus place for every child that wishes to have one. The additional school bus transport will be routed along Finchampstead Road collecting and dropping off children who live in the vicinity

Currently there is inadequate school bus provision along the Finchampstead Road corridor and poor walking and cycling facilities. There is a bus to St Crispins but it may be oversubscribed, and children attending Emmbrook have to get to a bus stop in Finchampstead on Barkham Ride to board which is nowhere near where they live. Walking and cycling facilities are very poor with narrow pavements along heavily used A roads and no segregated cycle lanes. Safe, green transport options need to be readily available for our children and their absence will increase car use, with emissions growth counter to the Council's declared climate emergency.
