SUNDAY services would be withdrawn on a bus route calling at Wilmslow under a bus service review.

The review is being carried out by Cheshire East Council, which is looking at changes to subsidised bus services and flexible transport (Little Bus) across the area.

The council is carrying out a consultation to understand how the proposed changes to local buses currently supported by Cheshire East Council would affect the public.

It is planning to make cost savings of £1.6 million on its current supported bus budget to help meet its budget target.

Under the proposed changes Sunday services would be withdrawn on the 130 service between Macclesfield, Wilmslow and Manchester.

The local bus network in Cheshire East is a mixture of supported bus services which are subsidised by the council and operated on its behalf, and commercial bus services which are run by private operators who have full control over how, where and when bus services are run.

This consultation considers only supported bus services subsidised by Cheshire East Council.

The council said: “We recognise that local buses are an important factor in the lives of Cheshire East residents and therefore it is vital that you have your say on our proposed changes.

“Your feedback will help us improve the proposals and decide on the way forward. No final decision has been taken at this stage.”

The consultation closes on Wednesday, July 26, and to comment visit
