A circular hopper route one hour in length has been created to link residential areas to the town centre and local surgery which is on the edge of town. Uppingham town centre is on a hill and many of the elderly have trouble walking uphill to town. the Hopper will provide an hourly circular service run by volunteers Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Uppingham has over 300 people over 80 years of age.and no regular local bus service
Steps to get it done:
The acquisition of a Hopper Bus will empower large sections of the Uppingham community, particularly the elderly and the disadvantaged. The Hopper could also be used to assist a wide variety of community groups and charities in Rutland.
