Fix Stapleton Road's bus seating!

We the undersigned want Bristol City Council to take seriously that the bus seating on Stapleton Road (next to the post office) is needed for the residents and visitors of Easton who are disabled, elderly or pregnant. We want Bristol City Council to understand that it's not okay that we have to either: sit on the floor; sit on the cold metal base (under what would be the seat); or stand for periods of time which they would not do otherwise. We want Bristol City Council to take our concerns seriously and to not neglect residents and visitors of Easton.

We have tried reporting this issue to the council, and have back and forth emails with the Public Transport Team from Bristol City Council, but they are refusing to replace the seating that was taken out due to 'anti-social behaviour'.

We believe that seating is a minimum requirement, that needs to be available for everyone but especially people who are disabled, elderly or pregnant. This means that people unable to stand, or can only stand for small amounts of time, have to stand, or end up sitting on the cold and thin metal base of what was the bottom of the seat.

We believe this is unfair to people who are unable to stand, or can only stand for small amounts of time.
