Lincolnshire Bus Cuts

On Friday (19th February), Lincolnshire County Council will announce a decision on subsidies for 'traditional' fixed bus services - the demand responsive Call Connect service is not impacted. It currently fully or partially supports 148 routes at an annual cost of £2.8 million, but wishes to save £2.2 million from it's public transport budget. Helpfully the council has detailed exactly what it funds at the moment, and the full list can be found on this page. Below are the cross-boundary services into North and North East Lincolnshire that receive financial support from Lincolnshire County Council, and which could be at threat from withdrawal or reductions.
