Shadow rail minister Lilian Greenwood MP visited Long Eaton recently where she met with Catherine Atkinson, Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Erewash.
Catherine Atkinson is championing the cause of a group of residents from Fields Farm Estate, who have a bus stop but no bus.
New government figures have revealed bus routes in England are being slashed, leaving people stranded.
She said: “I’m really pleased Lilian chose Long Eaton to launch this campaign because Fields Farm Estate residents are showing why passenger power is important. A bus stop without a bus - that sums up this government’s record on public transport.”
