Bus Services Consultation

Information from Derbyshire County Council:

 Consultation on subsidised buses launched

Local residents are being asked their views on proposals to stop paying for local bus services and community transport to help DCC deal with the biggest budget cuts in our history.


By 2020, the funding we get from central government is expected to be more than a third less than in 2010.

This means we need to review what we spend on paying for local bus services which don’t carry enough passengers to be run commercially (subsidised buses).

We’re also reviewing the amount of money we give to Derbyshire’s six community transport schemes to run Dial-a-Bus (DAB) ‘shopping buses’.

We’re already scaling back on our support for DAB services meaning that from this year we will fund one of these trips a week for every community, town or village, to a nearby town centre or supermarket. Some areas currently have several services a week. (more…)
