Bus service subsidies

1) Has the county council reduced the number of bus services it subsidises since 2010?


a. If yes, how many bus services of this kind have been suspended by the county council?

We have interpreted ‘bus services…. suspended’ to mean ‘as a result of the removal or reduction of County Council subsidy, bus services permanently withdrawn and not wholly or largely replaced by means of revision to or diversion of another service, thereby rendering passengers unable to make the journeys they were formally making.’

2) Does the county council have any plans to reduce its subsidised bus services (further) in the short/medium term?
