THE parish link bus service will be retained, despite an average of just over three people per journey.
The P2 service, which links the north of the island across the centre on a 90-minute cycle, was introduced by CT Plus last November, targeting community-based facilities.
Around 6,500 passengers have used the service to date.
The route includes the Princess Elizabeth Hospital, L’Aumone, Landes du Marche, Capelles, L’Islet and Maraitaine Road.
Despite averaging just3.19 passengers on each 90-minute journey, Traffic and Highway Services said gradual growth in the service was to be expected.
It said that the service provided valuable access to both key locations and less-frequently-served routes.
‘The community-based P2 bus service was introduced on 16 November 2015 and has carried in excess of 6,500 passengers to date,’ it said.
