Bus Consultation

Dorset County Council spent £2.7m last year on subsidising bus journeys all over the county. They are entering into consultation to ensure that the money is spent as effectively as possible, to assist as many residents as it can. A bus service is vital in a rural county and next year the fund will be smaller.

They are asking residents to fill in a consultation questionnaire on line at http://www.dorsetforyou.com/407537 Please log in and fill out a survey, they really do need your views.

A full list of all the services that are subsidised can be seen at http://www.dorsetforyou.com/busconsultation

Last year there were 11m passenger journeys, just under half of these (44%) were made on concessionary passes, about one quarter of the routes were subsidised.
