Support for bus services

The County Council is also looking to reduce the money it spends on supporting bus services. Here is what they say:

We are proposing to carry out a review of the money we give to bus companies to subsidise bus routes and the grants we give to community transport operators, with a view to saving £0.5 million in 2018/19. We want to look at whether we could get better value for money without there being a noticeable impact on passengers. However it is likely that we would need to prioritise which services we continue to support in order to save some of this money.
