Savage cuts to leave residents stranded

 

No night or weekend Buses after £4.5 million Council cuts

After lengthy and expensive public consultation on bus cuts the County Council’s answer is to have another consultation. They now plan to stop running buses at 7.30pm and on Sundays.

If the new proposals are agreed it could mean an even bigger cut than originally planned; up to £4.5million over three years.  Hertfordshire County Councillor Leon Reefe said, "These are savage cuts to services clearly proposed by those who don't have to rely on buses to get to work or to
see family and friends. For some people who aren't fortunate to have a car this is their only means of travelling around the area."
The new public consultation will probably not start until January but it is imperative that local residents express their views to their local councillors and respond to the new consultation. Cllr Reefe had received over 500 emails from residents opposing the savage cuts. He added “Approximately 13000 people had signed petitions opposing cuts.
