The number of bus services that received subsidies in the financial year 2010/11 was 14 or 13% of the bus network. The amount spent on buses in 2010/11 was £566,822 and the amount allocated to buses in 2011/12 was £569,535.
Number of bus services that will be reduced or withdrawn is only one. However the council has stated it is difficult to predict the extent of further reductions or withdrawals and that it is likely that in subsequent years that there will be changes to bus services.
The council has withdrawn the ring and ride ‘Twister service’. On concessionary travel, free bus use for bus pass holders will be taken back to 9.30am, the statutory minimum.
