New location needed for bus ticket office
COUNCILLORS in Salisbury have agreed to consider plans to put bus firm Wilts & Dorset’s ticket office in its revamped information centre even though most councillors are against the company’s plan to close the city’s bus station.
When the station closes in January, Wilts & Dorset will also shut the ticket office in Endless Street in January.
At a meeting of the council’s policy and resources committee on Monday, several members raised concerns about supporting any negotiations when most of them are against the closure altogether, but city clerk Reg Williams said if they didn’t start negotiations now it could be too late to put a new office in place before the current one closes.
Councillors agreed in principle that officers could start looking into it, returning to the committee with their findings in November.
