Bus Services after the Spending Review - Transport Committee Contents

Written evidence from Kingsdon Parish Council (BUS 75)

The aged in small rural communities are very dependent on public transport where the village has lost its post office and in many cases has lost the village shop or closure is imminent. To these people this service is a life line. Any attempt to reduce the bus service with less flexibility would produce a narrow timetable creating anxiety for the aged.

If cuts are to be made in the transport budget free transport should be confined to essential journeys only.
