AN EASTLEIGH bus company has taken on more routes in Hampshire.

Hampshire County Council and Eastleigh Borough Council have awarded Xelabus the X4 and X7 services around Eastleigh, Hedge End and Chandler’s Ford.

The new X4 route from Eastleigh to Hedge End began last Monday.

The company has also been awarded a new X5 service taking passengers from Parkway to Chandler’s Ford station, going past B&Q and Aviva. This starts from September 1.

As a result the company has invested in four new single-decker vehicles.

Why give them more routes when they are not capable of running all the timetabled services on the routes they have! I think the councils should get out & about & talk to the passengers that travel on the buses to find out if a company should be given more routes & only companies who do not drop services & treat passengers correctly in all aspects of their services on the bus, on the telephone, website & these days twitter & facebook updates about late running services not give the company the route because they are the cheapest during the tender process!
