When it comes to playing bingo online there are many factors we don’t have to consider and transport is high up on the list. We can stumble to the PC or boot up the laptop with no requirement for buses or cars, even the push bike is redundant in the world of online bingo. However, there are many players who choose to play in their local bingo halls and it has come as a huge blow to players in Coventry to find their bingo bus service cancelled.
Residents have found that a supposed ‘new and improved’ service from National Express Coventry for the number 3 service no longer stops on the junction of Hugh Road and Humber Road on it’s route to Prologis Park from University Hospital and this means no more bingo sessions for many of the elderly residents.
With bingo halls facing adversity in the financial climate wouldn’t it be an idea for the members to get together, work out routes and destinations and maybe suggest to the powers that be at their local hall that a minibus might be a sound investment. The club involved, not only in Coventry but in other parts of the country, could charge a nominal fee to their patrons for collection and drop offs ensuring that not only do their patrons get to play, but that their clubs still have customers through the doors.
Thankfully for us, as lovers of the game online, we don’t have to face such issues but our hearts go out to those that have yet to experience the joys of playing bingo online!
