Supported Bus Services

Andrew Allen made this Freedom of Information request to Leicestershire County Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

To whom it may concern,

I am making this request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I am gathering information on bus and public transport provision in Leicestershire County Council to chart which bus services would be lost without local government funding.

Please can you provide a full list of all supported bus services in the fiscal year 2015/16? Please include the service name and route summary.

This refers to the Department for Transport’s definition of a supported bus service as: “one where a local transport authority has invited tenders for the operation of a service (not e.g. seats on a bus or subsidised tickets etc), and a contract exists as a result of that tender”. Please exclude extra sources of funding or support such as Section 106/developer funding, Community Infrastructure Levy, local authority staffing and publicity, RTPI expenditure and revenue, the Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG), Local Education Authority funding for home to school transport, NHS-funded non-emergency patient transport, social services transport, voluntary transport and other scheme-specific central and national government grants or income streams, such as funding received from Local Enterprise Partnerships, the Local Growth Fund, Local Sustainable Transport Fund etc.

Faithfully,
Andrew Allen
