Shakeup to Dorset's Bus Services

five ways bus info

7:37am 31st March 2014

It's the last week of many bus services in Dorset as we know them because next week it's 'all change' for a number of routes currently being subsidised.

From Sunday, 10 routes will be completely withdrawn, 12 others lose Saturday services. In all 39 routes suffer alterations while another 39 stay the same.

The cuts came after the government stopped funding non-commercial bus routes.

The savings by Dorset County Council in implenting the changes come to £822,000.
