Bus services from rural towns and villages into Carlisle are all but gone. Many villages are cut off and you can no longer travel from where you live without a car.
One particularly bad example is that there is no longer a bus or college bus from Alston to Carlisle. This has lead to college students being unable to get to college without the help of the local community. If no one is driving that way then they just dont go in.
Many pensioners are also cut off and are unable to visit shops, collect their pension and more.
