Stop the Herts Bus Cuts

Join Dorothy Thornhill's campaign to Stop the Herts Bus Cuts!

The Liberal Democrats have been leading the campaign against the Conservative County Council’s plans to cut bus services. In the summer the Conservatives proposed cutting supported bus services after 6.30pm Monday to Saturday and all day Sunday.

We told them that we wouldn’t accept that. Over the summer and autumn Lib Dems across Herts collected over 12,000 petition signatures against these plans. If you signed our petition, thank you.

But we need your help again. The Tories, including our MP in Watford, have backed plans for even greater cuts, £1.5 million in total. This is despite having already made the savings they originally said they wanted to.   

Their new plans are to cut services after 7:30pm Monday-Saturday, all bus services on a Sunday and 39 routes completely.  This is effectively a curfew on those who can’t or don’t drive

We will be fighting these plans tooth and nail. Once the consultation comes out in January we will be asking people to respond firmly against these cuts. We are now collecting a new petition against these new cuts- signatures on the last petition do not count as its already been presented, please sign again

    Im registered disabled and rely on buses. The services are already very limited where I live. If they cut them anymore they’ll be non existant.

    You can’t stop the buses. It’s vital for people who cannot afford private transport. All cuts and changes made by the Tory party are put in place to make the poorer and less fortunate people in this country suffer more than they already are. Why don’t you stop earning millions yourselves and share with the people who actually run your country. By doing the hard work and “lower” value jobs that you never would.
