Robert Courts MP met with representatives of the West Oxfordshire Community Transport Association (WOCTA) this morning to pledge his unwavering support for local community transport operators.
Robert took a ride on the Witney Town Bus and vowed to do everything he could to support them in Parliament.
After riding the Witney Town Bus, Robert said: "I was pleased to meet with the West Oxfordshire Community Transport Association this morning to take a ride on the Witney Town Bus.
"The bus currently serves 500 passengers a week, many of whom are elderly and vulnerable. I had the chance to speak to some passengers this morning and they told me just how vital the service is to them.
"Quite simply, community transport is an essential service in West Oxfordshire and without it a great many people would be left isolated, unable to go to the shops or the doctors, or even out to visit family and friends.
"I will continue to do everything I can to ensure that community transport providers in West Oxfordshire are able to thrive and help even more people."
