PEOPLE in Aireborough are being urged to take part in a bus consultation amid warnings about changes to a service.

Bus users have until July 21 to make their views known about the the four options being considered for the number 97 bus. Aireborough Civic Society is warning that one of the options could mean people living in Guiseley, Rawdon and Yeadon will no longer be able to get the bus to Headingley. The group says: "First Bus claim it will make the 97 Bus Service more reliable. However as three of the four options reduce bus frequency from every 20 minutes to every 30 minutes this looks more to be about cost cutting."

The consultation follows an earlier one in march.

"Both Aireborough Civic Society and Aireborough Neighbourhood Forum sent First a detailed response with many real improvements and we are disappointed to find out that these suggestions seem to have been ignored - as they do not appear in any of the proposals," the civic society says.

Comment via or to ring First Bus Customer Services on 0113 381 5000.

On its website First asks for views on the four options.

It says: "Customers gave a wide range of feedback for route 97. Most wanted the service to be more reliable, some suggested alternative routes instead of via Headingley Centre and some wanted a faster journey."
