Ilkley to Grassington bus service under threat
9:00am Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
A bus service connecting Ilkley with Grassington and the Yorkshire Dales could be cut as part of North Yorkshire County Council spending reductions.
The Council has launched a consultation on proposals to reduce spending on subsidised local bus services in the authority area by £1.1 million per year.
The proposals include the withdrawal of all scheduled journeys on the Service 74 bus, which runs between Ilkley and Grassington. Also threatened is a Saturday service between Skipton and Malham.
North Yorkshire County Council says no decision to withdraw bus subsidies will be taken without consideration of the results of the consultation exercise.
