Bus crisis looms as councils cut services ‘at an alarming rate’, campaigners say
Campaign for Better Transport report shows more than 2,000 routes reduced or withdrawn since 2010 as funding has been cut
Half of local authorities in England and Wales are withdrawing or reducing their bus services as a result of funding cuts, according to a report from a public transport campaign group which warns that passengers face a “bus crisis”.
The Campaign for Better Transport (CBT) said that essential local services were being lost “at an alarming rate”, with rural areas worst hit where communities were being cut off as route networks were destroyed by successive cuts.
