Derbyshire County Council is running a consultation on Subsidised Bus travel and, as a large number of our local Buses are subsidised in some way, it is important that residents respond to it.
The loss of the supported bus network in Derbyshire could impact on the ability of people to lead independent lives, particularly those who are entirely dependent on this transport network to access key services. For example *health care *shopping *education and training and *employment opportunities.
If you wish to state your views on whether the subsidies should continue you can find the consultation on the Derbyshire County Council web site or obtain a paper copy from the library.
A large number of our local buses are subsidised see the list below:-
Transpeak Manchester – Buxton – Bakewell – Matlock – Derby (High Peak Buses)
64 Glossop – New Mills – Macclesfield (High Peak Buses)
60 Disley – New Mills – Whaley Bridge – Macclesfield (High Peak Buses) 61 Glossop – New Mills – Buxton (High Peak Buses
62 Hayfield – Thornsett – New Mills – Marple (High Peak Buses)
199 Buxton – Stockport – Manchester Airport (High Peak Buses)
358 Hayfield – New Mills – Stockport (Stagecoach Manchester)
389 New Mills Town Service (High Peak Buses) All – Monday to Saturday
394 Glossop – Stepping Hill Hospital (High Peak Buses) Saturday (part funded by Transport for Greater Manchester). This may be subject to change – so far it is safe during the week, but the Saturday service is likely to be lost
