SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENTS

Whilst many would bemoan the public transport service we have in Clanfield, there are some aspects which are excellent, and certainly some that could be improved.
Travelling South to Waterlooville, Portsmouth and Southsea are well supported, whilst the journey North to Petersfield is virtually non existent in the evenings and on Sunday.
If there are destinations that you would frequently require to travel to (locally) but are unable to access with public transport, please contact Clanfield Parish Council at clanfieldpc@virginmedia.com, or 02392596353
Whilst we often have very little influence on the transport services being provided, it is always useful for us to know what improvements are required and we can pass these on accordingly
Likewise, if you have any suggestions for improving transport links, services or conditions in general, again please contact the Parish Council.
