Staffordshire County Council requesting views on subsidising bus journeys in Staffordshire

Staffordshire County Council are reminding people that there is still time to have their say on how the budget for subsidising bus journeys in Staffordshire can be best spent. Although the county council does not operate bus services, it subsidises just under ten per cent of bus journeys in Staffordshire, largely because not enough people use them or not enough income is generated to make them profitable. Next year, £1.3m will be spent on these journeys and we are asking people, whether they use the bus or not, for their views on the four options possible with the budget.

The consultation closes on September 17 and residents are being encouraged to go online at  to have their say.
