Councillor Ian Hudspeth, the County Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport said: “I am keen for our consultation to involve as many local people as possible.
"Letters to parish and town councils have already been sent out and I would urge anyone who feels that they can contribute to our consultation process to contact them. Most parishes also have local public transport representatives.
"It is important that the county council spends the money it has available for bus subsidy as wisely as possible. The opinions of local people will count towards that."
