New threat to the transport-poor

Hampshire may stop providing taxi vouchers as an altermative to bus passes.

It’s one of a series of measures being considered to meet a huge deficit in the County Council’s budget.

This could hit elderly and chronically sick people who don’t have easy access to a bus route, and depend on taxis to get to hospiatals and other medical appointments.

A consultation on Hampshire’s bus service plan is running until July 23. Have your say here.
