Powys bus users are being asked to comment on two options being put forward to reduce the cost of public transport by £500,000.
Both options will mean a reduction in the number of bus services on offer in the county but aim to sustain key routes and ensure residents get the most equitable service from the budget available.
The current budget of £2.3m has been reduced to £1.8m as part of the council’s savings programme. Currently there are 29 bus routes operating in Powys and 27 of them are subsidised by the county council. Only two are run by commercial bus companies.
Views can be given via an online consultation which is available on the council’s website www.powys.gov.uk/haveyoursay
The consultation page provides details of the current bus provision plus two options that Powys County Council have drawn up and a survey to capture views. The consultation will close on Monday 29th June.
