Decision details

Review of Council Subsidised Local Bus Service Provision

Decision Maker: Decision Session - Executive Member for City Strategy

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of report: The report will consider the bus services subsidised by the Council within the context of the wider bus network. The report will inform the tendering process, due to take place in 2011, for the procurement of all supported bus services wholly operated within the City of York area.


The Executive Member is asked to: Approve one of the options put forward for the ongoing provision of Council supported bus services.


RESOLVED:             That the Executive Member for City Strategy agrees:


i) That the proposed network of bus routes, as detailed in Option E of the officer report, be tendered in December 2010 for introduction from September 2011.

ii)                  To the withdrawal of services as indicated in the officer report.


iii)                To request officers to report back if there are significant implications for the City caused by any reductions in subsidised bus services which may be agreed by neighbouring authorities.


REASON:                  This course of action will meet with the current efficiency agenda of the Council whilst providing the most comprehensive and attractive network of bus routes which will retain an acceptable level of bus provision across the City.
