Going the extra mile for passengers

WE feel we must thank Stagecoach for getting people home efficiently after the Olympic torch event.

On arriving at Hastings Station on the 99 bus, having watched the torch pass in Grosvenor Crescent with friends, we were asked by a member of Stagecoach staff where we needed to get to.

We told him that we needed routes 21A or 22 and he asked us to wait while he made enquiries of the other prospective passengers and their destinations.

He called a bus across from the other side of the station forecourt.

It had been in use for park and ride and we were all able to board this bus and arrive safely home.

Congratulations to all who worked so hard on that night regarding public transport. MARGARET TRANTER and YVONNE KELLERWAY
