I AM surprised that Mr Casperson needs to use Park & Ride (The Press, April 14) when there is a bus stop 200 yards from his house served during the day by a half- hourly bus service (no.10) which goes through the city centre, calling at York Railway Station, Rougier Street and Piccadilly, before leaving York on the Hull Road.

My worry is that if Poppleton people do not use this very convenient local service then, when the new Park&Ride is up and running, it will be withdrawn and we shall all need our cars to get to the Park&Ride terminal.
