Bus Service Cuts

Hertfordshire County Council is proposing to cut the transport budget by at least £700,000 in 2015/2016. To achieve this they intend to cut the current support on services after 6.30pm and on Sunday. They also intend to repeat this in 2016/17 and 2017/18.

Councillors Leon Reefe and Richard Butler set up a petition online and asked for supporters to sign this petition. The petition can be accessed via the following link: Stop the Bus Service Cuts
