Gloucestershire council to introduce new bus timetables

New bus timetables are being introduced in Gloucestershire as part of the council's plan to cut its £5m annual transport budget.

The initiative is part of Gloucestershire County Council's four-year programme of cuts totalling £114m.

By re-timing buses to improve connections and reducing the frequency of less-used services, the council said it would save £2m by 2013.

Timetables for the adjusted services will be available from 1 November.

Councillor Chas Fellows, cabinet member for economy and environment, which includes transport, said: "We've managed to redesign a bus network that really works for passengers and helps the county council to save £2m.

"There are some real improvements among these changes and the council has worked very hard to get the best deal possible for all."
