Bus Services after the Spending Review - Transport Committee Contents

Written evidence from Brympton Parish Council (BUS 94)

I refer to your recent request for information on cuts to bus services in Somerset.

Brympton Parish Council consider it is too early for consultation to take place as the cuts have only just come into operation. Could the consultation be extended?

The Parish Council expressed concerns regarding the loss of Sunday and evening services - many people in rural parishes do not drive and the bus is their only means of access for hospital visiting, shops, recreation and other services.

The Parish Council is also considered that there may be an increase in drink-driving offences.
