Consultation on subsidised Lancashire bus services
3:22pm Friday 3rd January 2014 in News
LANCASHIRE County Council is seeking views from members of the public on the future of council-funded bus services on evenings and Sundays.
The county council has already committed to saving over £200million by March 31 and, following recent announcements by the government over future funding, it now needs to find further estimated savings of £300million between 2014 and 2018.
As part of a range of proposals being considered, the council is looking to reduce the amount of money spent on supporting bus services in the county by withdrawing the funding to subsidise bus services during the evenings and on Sundays.
The council insists no decision will be taken without carefully considering the results of the consultation which closes on Friday, January 17.
