By contemplating these cuts the council is failing on many levels in its duty to enable our communities to function efficiently. Good quality, regular and reliable public transport enables the elderly to maintain social contacts, the young to travel to school, work or job interviews, helps reduce the impact of climate change, has the potential to make roads safer if there are less cars about and ensures residents in remoter areas of our county do not feel socially or economically isolated.
The bus services should be maintained by using the £2.4m Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
