The county council was consulting on a plan to withdraw funding for all Sunday bus routes and evening bus services they currently support. However on 6th May 2011 they announced that after hearing the views of bus users they have decided to make a less damaging cut to the bus budget.
However the budget has still been reduced from £4,623,000 in 2010.11 to £4,123,000 in 2011/12. The 74 evening Sunday service in the county will be withdrawn from 19th June 2011, route 52 running from High Wycombe to Amersham and Chesham is also likely to be affected, and proposals suggest both services will no longer be running after 4.30pm on Sunday and weekday evenings.
Details of more services that were affected from 15th May 2011 because of changes to subsidised evening and Sunday services, can be found in the sources bellow.
See the Arriva Bus link in the sources section for details of service changes across the Aylesbury area.
The council have also published a list of services that will be changing from 24th July 2011. As most of these services are contracted, it’s difficult to know whether these changes are because of cuts to bus subsidies. For a list of service affected see sources bellow.
To lessen the impact, the council are promoting a Community Transport Fund of up to £100,000 to communities who can demonstrate a need for additional transport.
