Public, Community & School Transport

Review of Local Bus and Community Transport Services 2014

This consultation is now closed and the responses are being reviewed. The outcomes are expected to be announced later in the year.

What is this consultation about?

Hampshire County Council needs to save £1.25 to £1.5 million from public and community transport spending by 2015/16 and this consultation aims to collect the views and preferences of organisations and individual users to aid us in the decision-making process.

The contribution from the Passenger Transport Services support could be achieved by a mixture of the following options:

  • Reducing or ceasing support for Sunday services

  • Reducing or ceasing support for evening services after 7pm

  • Ceasing the 9am early start for the older persons bus pass

  • Reducing the frequency and/or days of service

  • Replacing bus services with taxishares or community transport services

  • Reducing the amount of printed publicity with a greater use of electronic information

This review looks at those bus and community transport services which receive financial support from the County Council
