Save Our Buses: Join the fight to protect a lifeline from Kent County Council’s cuts
This petition had 17,717 supporters
Dozens of bus services across Kent could be axed in the new year.
The county council says it needs to save £4 million by ending its subsidy of 78 routes.
These services may not be the most popular but they are a vital lifeline for many.
That means schoolchildren, the elderly, people who can't afford to drive and those medically unable to do so.
These cuts would bring a new burden on the parents, the sons and daughters and the neighbours who are forced to step in to bridge the gap.
Some may have to give up work.
Worse still - for the elderly unlucky enough not to have someone to help - isolation.
We all know times are tough but this is a cut too far.
Join the fight to make our councillors see sense.
Save Our Buses.
