Evening and Sunday Buses under threat

Lancsbus_P1030091

Whilst the daytime buses to Halton are provided by Stagecoach as a commercial operation, the evening and Sunday services are underwritten by Lancashire County Council. But, they are short of money and are proposing to axe all bus services needing a subsidy from them. For us in Halton, this means we will loose the evening service and the Sunday service. There is a consultation period but the deadline is the end of next week.

To be fair, if a service isn’t being used, its not a good use of public money. But, good public transport links are important for any community. Parish Council will consider the proposals on 8th January.
