FEEDBACK: Bus Services – Your Views

Here at Calderdale Forum 50 Plus, we’re dedicated to representing the views, needs and interests of older people in the area. We recently visited the “Young at Heart Group”, which is based at the Shay (home of Halifax football and Rugby teams) on Thursday afternoons 2pm until 4pm. They offer lots of varied activities, including social outings and discussion, plus games for older men and women.

Whilst talking to the group, we asked if there were any issues affecting them that they would like to discuss. Two or three people mentioned the difficulties they were having with the service provided by Tiger Buses in Calderdale.

Things mentioned included lateness, buses not turning up at all, being cancelled and even breaking down. We would be interesting to see if other readers have experienced similar problems with Tiger Buses (or indeed any other bus service provider in Calderdale). In particular if problems with buses have led to knock-on inconvenience such as anxiety and or missed appointments for hospital, dentist or GP? Don’t forget to include details o where and when the problem occurred.

We’ll collect together all your feedback and pass it on to Tiger Buses, with the aim of providing them with some genuine feedback and a firm nudge to improve their services. Email us with your personal experiences at

We will keep you details confidential and only pass on your observations.
