Leicester subsidised bus routes scrutinised

Passengers using subsidised bus routes in Leicester have been urged to take part in a survey about their future.

The city council, which is making £70m of budget cuts by 2014, said it supports nine regular and eight school routes which are otherwise uneconomic.

It wants people to give feedback on how often they use a route and why.

A spokesman said the authority needed to target resources at the "areas of greatest need". The consultation ends on 27 January.

No decisions have yet been made about the future funding of any route, the council insisted.

Routes 10/11, 17, 21A. 36, 40, 55, 73, 81, 162, and schools services 805, 808, 823, 860, 862, 887/888, 1010, and S1005 are included.
