Funding bid to support bus services

As part of its ongoing work to protect bus services, as well as plans to help the borough recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the Council has submitted a bid to Government aimed at protecting existing weekend bus services.

Funding bid to support bus services

It wants to keep these running because they will help people to access key borough towns and businesses, particularly at weekends, and play a key in supporting the recovery of the borough’s High Streets and economy.

The council has applied for £77,000 from Government to ensure these services continue to be protected during the challenging financial climate created by the pandemic.

Councillor David Wright, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for the Economy, Housing, Transport and Infrastructure, said: "We are proud of our transport links in Telford and Wrekin and they are definitely one of the things that makes the borough special and attractive to inward investors.

“While we are continually striving to improve what we currently have and ensure our transport infrastructure is as modern and varied as possible, we must also not lose sight of our existing routes and making sure residents who use and rely on these are still catered for."
