Councillor is working to save buses

Kent County Council (KCC) is seeking to save money by cutting the financial support for a number of bus routes in Kent. In addition, some commercial bus routes that do not receive a subsidy from KCC are also being axed because the Government’s Bus Recovery Grant is coming to an end and passenger numbers are still 30% below 2019 levels.

Cllr Nick Pope has been working to save the 285 bus that runs between Hawkenbury and Tunbridge Wells, talking to KCC, Nu-Venture Coaches, AXA and Berkeley Homes, all of whom have an interest in having a bus service in Hawkenbury.
