Derbyshire public transport subsidies
Derbyshire County Council is consulting on ending train and community bus travel subsidies for members of the Gold Card scheme for pensioners and some disabled people. Currently, the card allows half-price travel on regional rail services free use of Dial-a-Bus minibuses.
The council is also looking to axe 43 bus services with low passenger use.
In addition, the authority is considering reducing its b-line travel fares subsidy for 14-to-19-year-olds in education, and lowering the amount it pays towards fares for pupils living less than three miles from secondary school.
