Frequently asked questions

The public transport consultation is now closed.

The results are being analysed and will be added to the website in due course.

Why can’t the Council charge for the provision / use of the National Bus Pass?

The County Council administers the National Bus Pass according to legislation contained in the Concessionary Travel Act 2007. As such it is not possible – by law – for us to request payment for the first issue of a National Bus Pass or to request that the passenger pay a contribution to the bus fare. It would require an act of Parliament to alter the legislation governing the National Bus Pass scheme.

Does the review affect all Council funded public transport services?

No, the review does not affect all Council funded public transport services. If there is not a proposal for the service you are looking for, it means that there are currently no proposals to reduce that service.
