RESIDENTS were let down as First Bus ended efforts to save the X1 express bus. Hamilton West and Earnock’s Liberal Democrat Councillor Mark McGeever fought for over a year to save the service.
He said: "First has badly let down this community. "Commitments they made to us in February have been abandoned without proper explanation. “It's hard not to think there never was any real intention to save the X1. "I’ve written to SPT and other bus companies in the hope something can be done and of course I will always work with anyone willing to help.”
