A survey in 2010 showed that residents of Hull listed public transport in the top four most important council services, because of benefits to the community as well as individuals.
The number of bus services that received subsidies in 2010/11 was 12, equating to 6% of the bus network. The amount spent on buses in 2010/11 was £383,000 and the amount allocated to buses in 2011/12 was £342,000
The following grants are no longer available:
• Sustainable Travel grant, savings of 18k
• Extended Rights to Free Transport grant which helps poorer children get free transport, savings of 146K
Following spending cut-backs in Hull, there were reports that pensioners using their concessionary fares to travel into town on the 48 service, have been asked to ‘voluntarily’ pay up to £2.60 of the return cost of travel.
