No. 73 Bus Service Under Threat

No73Derbyshire County Council need to withdraw subsidies from certain bus routes from 2017 due to austerity.

One of those being considered for withdrawal is the 7am service of the No.73 to Aston and Weston.

If they withdraw subsidy from the 73 then Notts Derby buses are unlikely to continue as it is not profitable.  It is the only way some people get to work/college on time.

If they withdraw this service it is quite likely it will spread to other services through the day in the future.

The consultation is now closed but you can still write to:
