reject plans to cut £750,000 from the subsidies for bus services.

    1. Petition by

      West and South Dorset Green Party

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.

To:
reject plans to cut £750,000 from the subsidies for bus services.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      By using public transport rather that your car we reduce the carbon immissions discharged by the car. This was one of the reasons for introducing the bus pass

      This is one of the main ways I use to get around, and if these get cut not only will i suffer by the elderly that can't drive wont be able to get around and that just isn't fair.

      As a young person, who not only can't afford to buy a car but also cares about the welfare of our environment, it is important to me that our bus service remains a useful and reliable form of public transport in order to help reduce our carbon footprint and provide an alternative form of travel for young people.

      Cars rule otherwise rather than a reduction in use.
