Poole Council are looking to slash another £152,000 from their budget and hope that cutting the Broadstone bus service will save £19,000.

Vikki Slade, who led the campaign to save the No. 32 bus said: “This bus route is used by elderly and vulnerable people who want to live independently. Poole Council can’t continue to target cuts at people who rely on public transport to get about.”

Cllr Mike Brooke said: “We urge local residents to support our petition and reply to the Council’s consultation before 13 November.”

The cuts would mean that the No. 18 would cease to loop round Broadstone before heading back towards Bournemouth.

Please do sign Vikki and Mike's petition today. The Council are running an online consultation until 13th November, visit poole.gov.uk/bussubsidies to have you say.
