Bus routes under threat as council seeks £2m reimbursement savings

Concessionary fares

Andrew Forster

Bus operators in Cornwall are warning that many services could be withdrawn if the council presses ahead with a £2.2m mid-year cut to concessionary fares reimbursement.

Cornwall wrote to operators earlier this month informing them of the intention to reduce the amount of reimbursement and proposing that the cut be made as soon as possible, including, possibly, retrospectively to 1 April.

Operators have responded by saying that services will be withdrawn if the cuts go ahead.
