The county council continues to face significant financial challenges with budget plans recently announced to save another £50m across all areas of the council.

One of the ways to make the best use of money available is to ensure passenger transport services best meet the essential transport needs of people in attending health appointments, making shopping trips and, in some cases, into employment.

We’ve consulted over 12 weeks on a new passenger transport policy and strategy which will help to ensure we meet our statutory duties, while achieving the best use of money in supporting local passenger transport services.

The findings of the consultation will be reported back to Cabinet at a later date.
