More Bus Cuts

Buses - Not in service
Not in service

A few people have asked me about the local impact of more cuts to bus subsidies announced by the Conservatives at Hampshire County Council.

A decision has been made to cut a further £500,000 from the bus subsidy budget.

In the New Forest area this means the H1/H2 and T3/T4 routes will be “re-timed” and will no longer operate within the peak time rush-hour periods.

The T3/T4 Saturday service will also be withdrawn.

This will save a combined £27,500.

As well as this, the number 6 bus, from Lymington to Southampton, will see fewer buses in the morning “peak times”.

Savings of £26,945 have been predicted.

The Saturday service of the 112, which runs from Hythe and Beaulieu to Lymington, will be scrapped, saving £6,500.

I know that the County Councillor for Totton North, Neville Penman, has made some valiant efforts to restore a direct bus service that will link Totton to Southampton General Hospital, all without success.

I don’t think that he will have any joy with his Conservative colleagues but full marks to him for trying.
