563 Service Withdrawal Questionnaire 

Due to the withdrawal of the 563 service on Friday 16th December, Cumbria County Council is keen to look at alternative options as no other operators have applied to replace the current service.


If you could please take a few minutes to complete the questionnaire and return to the address shown below asap, this would help in looking at the options for Community Wheels.
