Plymouth to review its £382,000 a year subsidy of bus services
Plymouth’s subsidised bus services will come under the spotlight at the Council’s Growth and Prosperity Overview and Scrutiny Panel meeting on 24 October.
A review will begin of the existing provision and criteria for the subsidised services. The Council spends £382,000 a year contracting bus services that would not otherwise be provided by the operators.
13 services are partly or fully subsidised by the Council. Fully subsidised routes serve the east, west and north of the city and the Council partly subsidises services for evening, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
Options and opportunities for through ticketing in the city will also be considered by the Panel. This allows passengers to buy tickets that are valid with more than one public transport company.

This initial review will also receive feedback for the discussions from the Council’s Young Person’s Transport Fair and Summit which is being held on 22 October. Subsequent meetings will be scheduled to enable recommendations to be put forward in early 2013.
Councillor Patrick Nicholson, Chair of the Panel said:”I welcome this opportunity to review the subsidised bus services and look at how decisions on subsidies are made, as well as the ticketing opportunities that exist for offering greater choice and flexibility to passengers.”
