Charlotte Jeffries (Swaffham, 2023-01-31)
#410Myself and many people I know rely on this service to get to kegworth and the airport. I'm sure there are many people who use only this bus and rely on it for their freedom.
Rebecca B (Beeston, 2023-01-31)
#411I would like the bus service to keep working
María Ignacia Santoro Mattos (Sutton Bonington , 2023-01-31)

Amin Aliyari (Loughborough, 2023-01-31)
#414I frequently use the bus to go into Loughborough for food shopping/cinema
Ameline Damy (Kegworth, 2023-01-31)
#415This bus allows me to travel back home safely especially later at night when the university hopper bus service is not running
Candice Billon (Wembley, 2023-01-31)
#418It's an essential service
Fraser Bohm (Kegworth, 2023-01-31)
#423I am a student at the university of Nottingham and my campus is the Sutton Bonington campus in Loughborough and the skylink gets me to uni and back when I don’t have a car
Scarlett Ketteringham (Nottingham , 2023-01-31)
#425As I live in kegworth and do not have a car it is one of the ways i am able to get to loughborough to access shops and get to the train station
There is not much public transport around there therefore taking this away affects many people
Abbeyrami Naathan (Kegworth, 2023-01-31)
#428I'm signing because I'm a local resident and I want to keep the buses. Losing the bus service will directly affect my family in a negative way.
Dawn Harrison (Kegworth, 2023-01-31)
#432I cannot afford and do not want to rely upon taxis.
Diane Browning (Derbyshire, 2023-01-31)
#435I don’t have a car whilst at uni, and use it to visit my sister in Loughborough and to go shopping.
Helen West (Derby , 2023-01-31)
#442I rely on this service and so do many others
Rebecca Mullaney (Kegworth, 2023-02-01)
#447I was told this service could loose its funding
Sharon Fajinmi (Loughborough , 2023-02-01)
#448Thinking about my course mates
Eliza Casparian (Derby, 2023-02-01)
#449It is the best link to loughborough for me
Grace Roberts (Hathern, 2023-02-01)
#450It is a vital service
Zack Ridley (Nottingham , 2023-02-01)
#453This is an important link for students without a way of getting to appointments, banks or larger retail shops. Without this transport link it could further isolate locals or students which can't drive
amber harrison (nottingham , 2023-02-01)
#459I’m signing because this bus service is very important to a lot of people living in Kegworth since the closest supermarket, stores, etc are all located in Loughborough. Especially for students without cars, it would be impossible to buy groceries and daily necessities without this bus service.
Annalise Tsang (Loughborough , 2023-02-01)
#462This is yet another rural service that has been put at risk. We are a very public spirited village and lots of things are achieved by volunteers - but we can't drive the buses ! Please maintain a regular service to support those who do not have their own transport or who are trying to be more environmentally friendly with their journeys
Karen Dayman (Derby, 2023-02-01)
#463This bus service is essential to my student life as I won't be able to get to the supermarket anymore
James Lawrence (Derby, 2023-02-01)
#465I need this service to get do my weekly shop and theres no other routes to get there. I also use it weekly to do get to my judo classes to further my practice
Connie Golder (Loughborough , 2023-02-01)
#466It’s a valuable and well used bus service that would impact lots of people nearby if it went
Isla Moor (Loughborough , 2023-02-01)
#467This service is essential to our village, which connects us to local areas and businesses. The lack of Saturday service is devastating
Karen Hood (Loughborough, 2023-02-01)
#469This bus service benefits many of the individuals, locals and students in the area to gain easy access to surrounding areas, that are important links for shops and major areas.
Austin Bellew (Nottingham, 2023-02-01)
#470I am Kegworth born and bed. This the only bus service at the Nottinghamshire side of the village. Only service connecting to Sutton Bonington and Long Eaton. It vital non car users to get around thw Midlands.
EMMA PETERS (Loughborough, 2023-02-01)
#474I lived on sutton bonington campus last year and worked in loughborough part time and without the blue skylink I would have had to walk to kegworth in my work clothes multiple days a week all through winter in order to make it there on time.
It is an essential service for non-driving students such as myself and many elderly people who I would share the bus with on the way into town.
Despite the yellow skylink still being availible for travel between loughborough and kegworth, removing the blue route from service would leave non-driving sutton bonington residents completely stranded from loughborough.
I chose to move into nottingham for my second year, primarily because of the poor transport links, and this would only make the problem worse.
Joseph Buckley (Beeston, 2023-02-01)
#475We don't want to lose this important link
jane.dudley jane.dudley (LOUGHBOROUGH, 2023-02-01)
#478Yes, I very often use this service to go to Sutton Bonington campus of my University from Kegworth especially during morning time.
Prabhjot Kaur (Derby, 2023-02-01)
#479I need this bus for university shopping
Rachael Hill (Stirling , 2023-02-01)
#480I use this bus for getting to work
Sharon Dakin (Derby, 2023-02-01)
#481I have no car and it the easiest way to get to Loughborough and back without paying an expensive taxis
Charlotte Gibb (Derby, 2023-02-01)
#482Due to my age I will probably have to relinquish my driving license in the coming years. I do use this service to the airport and Loughborough.
Ian Harrison (DERBY, 2023-02-01)
#483We use the selling to get to notts as well as get to sb campus
Ellie Skellett (Kegworth, 2023-02-02)
#488Older people like myself need it for Nottingham and the hospital.
Cynthia Ward (Kegworth, 2023-02-02)
#489Without this service Kegworth would be isolated for people who don’t own cars.
Donald Mee (Derby, 2023-02-02)
#490It’s important to keep good public transport connections to rural areas for those who can’t or shouldn’t drive
Helen Tanith (Kegworth, 2023-02-02)
#493I use the Skylink for trips to Loughborough & when going to the Airport
Coming up for retirement there’s an ever increasing likelihood that I may not be able to afford a car so will be relying on the service even more to get me about
Anne Porter (Kegworth, 2023-02-02)
#494Because I need it to access supermarkets
Louise Coutts (Kegworth, 2023-02-02)
#498I use this bus to Sutton bonington to use the doctors and visit family. I can't drive.
Rowan Hourd (Loughborough, 2023-02-03)
#499I don't want to see the service cancelled
Janet Leigh (Derby, 2023-02-03)
#504Public transport is a vital service to rural communities. Not everyone has the means to own and run a private car and stripping bus services further isolates marginalised people. Cutting public transport services runs directly against council targets of net carbon neutrality.
Matthew Doyle (Derby, 2023-02-03)
#506Although I am a car driver there are times when it is not okay to use it and the bus is essential to get anywhere outside the village. Also am aware of other folk in village unable to drive who rely on this transport.
Judith Warrior (Derby, 2023-02-03)
#507My children go to school in hathern
Lucie Marie (Loughborough Leicestershire, 2023-02-03)
#513I need this bus ti access local facilities
Halina Lezanowski (Derbys, 2023-02-03)
#514It’s a valuable service that keeps the village alive
Sarah Mills (Loughborough, 2023-02-03)
#516Shepshed is a town big enough to have a direct bus link to East Midlands Airport. Without the bus link the Shepshed residents would have problems getting to the airport and back, whether it is for work or going on holiday.
James Lees (Nottingham, 2023-02-03)
#520Bus services need to be more accessible not less
Zoe Hudson (Leicestershire, 2023-02-04)
#521It's an awesome service that gets used by all regularly
Connor McMenamin (Kegworth, 2023-02-04)
#526I live on the route, use the bus and don’t want to lose it!
Sally Varley (Loughborough , 2023-02-04)
#528We need the buses to fet to and from work .
Jessica Oldman (Loughborough , 2023-02-05)
#529I’m signing because I like to use the service weekends when I’m out socially or to take my children shopping
Lisa Picker (Kegworth, 2023-02-05)
#530I am signing up because this is a very important service to me that I use regularly. I already think that it is difficult to get around this area by public transport, Skylink is one of the 2 ways I am able to approach my university campus and the only way for me to approach the airport. Not to mention the dozens of villages that the route also connects.
Zsofi Gorbics (Nottingham, 2023-02-05)
#533I’m signing because this is really important service to the villages and communities
Sarah Barnett (Hathern, 2023-02-06)
#534We need this service
Claire Hutt (Shepshed, 2023-02-06)
#535I know several students who cannot afford to own or run a car and use this for essential travel and would be unable to travel to Loughborough without relying on others
Patrick Gregory (Rempstone, 2023-02-06)
#536I quite frankly think that’s it’s atrocious that our only major bus service is being stopped. How dare trentbarton deny the people of this village, particularly the elderly, without cars, their only reasonable route into Loughborough. I severely hope that they are planning to pay for the resident’s taxis when they need to go to the hospital or post office!! Ridiculous behaviour, you should be ashamed of yourselves trentbarton.
Hamish Metson (Kegworth, 2023-02-07)
#540I am signing this because, I would be a real shame to loose a service that all generation use and some depend on for work, college or going to do there shopping.
Nicole Wilson (Derby, 2023-02-08)
#543I want my friends to be able to continue using the bus network
Harriet Mole (Kegworth, 2023-02-09)
#545I use the sky link bus to get from University of Nottingham Sutton Bonington campus to get to Loughborough
Jarupat Namphunsuksan (Nottingham , 2023-02-13)
#548If you cancel the service I will not be able to get to work and back!
Olha Bielohlazova (Sutton Bonington , 2023-02-13)
#549I live in the village as does my mum who is concerned that the lack of bus service for the village would lead to her and many of the older village residents feeling very isolated. It is a life line for those unable to drive, including younger members of the village using it for college/work.
Caroline Tormey-staves (Sutton bonington, 2023-02-13)
#551It’s vital to many people in the village
Jess Bush (Loughborough, 2023-02-13)
#556The thought of having no public transport to get to our local town (Loughborough) is inconceivable in this day and age when as a nation we are being urged to use public transport more frequently.
John Griggs (Sutton Bonington , 2023-02-14)
#557I believe there are several people in both this village and Kegworth who are totally reliant on the bus service
Jill Skeavington (Loughborough, 2023-02-14)
#558It is important to maintain this lifeline for the local community
Adriana Hardisty (Loughborough, 2023-02-14)
#559I try to use the option of public transport when travelling into Loughborough, Nottingham and the option of Derby, especially in the afternoon/evening
j hutchison (Nottingham, 2023-02-14)
#560I have friends in Sutton Bonington and live in the next village and know what a huge loss it would be to the residents if this bus service was lost
Rachel Humphrey (Loughborough, 2023-02-15)
#561I want the service to at least continue as at present and hopefully for the weekend service to be reinstated.
Kenneth Davis (Loughborough, 2023-02-15)
#566This is a much needed service which will have a massive impact on local residents, and will just lead to more traffic on already congested roads.
Kerry Hawthorn (Derby, 2023-02-15)
#570A public transport connection is an important lifeline to the more remote villages. An investment in public transport (and promoting its use alongside) is an investment in our environment and a stronger sense of community.
Ian Morris (Sutton Bonington, 2023-02-16)
#571You can't just cut a village off especially with the older community 😔
Ian Howard (Loughborough, 2023-02-17)
#573This service is vital to a lot of residents in Sutton Bonington and the surrounding villages.
John Roberts (Sutton Bonington, 2023-02-17)

Carol Talbot (Loughborough, 2023-02-17)
#577My parents need this vital service
Natalie Howard (Loughborough , 2023-02-19)

Javier Burgos (Sutton Bonington, 2023-02-19)
#579We need this bus service to remain through Sutton Bonington. Many people, including families rely on this service including those travelling from surrounding villages to take their preschool children to Sutton Bonington Playgroup.
Jen Berridge (Sutton Bonington , 2023-02-20)
#580Despite my own low use of the bus it is an essential service for the village for those without a car. The village is rapidly growing with the new build houses so I’m sure the take up will become higher.
Pam Tunstall (Loughborough, 2023-02-20)
#582I use this bus weekly for food shopping and leisure purposes.
Emily Ainsley (Sutton Bonington, 2023-02-21)
#583Transport links are vital infrastructure and should be preserved for use by those without alternative means to get to work/family.
Laura Stinson (Loughborough, 2023-02-21)
#589I’m signing because I can’t get around easily as it is and this service is a need for so many people
