Nailsworth mayor's renewed confidence in buses is good news. Back when lockdown began, and there was barely any traffic, buses were able to be reliably punctual. Now the traffic-busy roads are back, there may be delays - through no fault of bus drivers. If more of us car-owners switched to bus travel, they would have more chance of keeping time. As Kevin Cranston discovered, they are taking pains to provide us with clean and safe journeys. It's up to the rest of us to keep them on the roads. Use them or lose them!
