Posted: January 20th, 2016 | Category: News |

Important Survey on the Future of Subsidised Bus Services in Wiltshire from Wiltshire Council.

Wiltshire Council currently spends £5.1 million a year supporting bus routes that would not be commercially viable on their own. This supports nearly half of all bus journeys in Wiltshire and is a level of support well above surrounding counties. Due to financial pressure the Council can no longer guarantee this level of support and is therefore looking at a number of options to reduce the number of bus routes it supports. As yet no decisions have been taken. We want your views so we can make the right decision so please take the survey below, it should take no more than 5 minutes and all your responses will be treated as confidential. Whether you are a regular bus user or one who rarely uses a bus it’s important you have your say.  Please click on the link below.
