Consultation on proposed changes to supported passenger transport services and the Concessionary Travel Scheme in Hampshire

Consultation open until

Hampshire County Council is seeking residents’ and stakeholders’ views on proposed changes to supported passenger transport services and the Concessionary Travel Scheme in Hampshire

The proposals within this consultation seek to continue to deliver effective services, within a reduced budget, by:

  • making operational changes to supported passenger transport services (including supported bus services, Dial-a-Ride, Call & Go, Taxishare and Minibus Group hire services),
  • removing some enhancements to the Concessionary Travel Scheme currently funded by the County Council, and
  • increasing the contributions users pay for some services.

The County Council would continue to meet its statutory duties and to work in partnership with bus operators to secure good commercial bus network coverage for Hampshire within the resources available.

This consultation is open from Monday 30 May 2022 and closes at 11:59pm on Sunday 24 July 2022.

Note that responses received after this time will not be included in the findings report.

The findings of the consultation will be published and presented to the Executive Lead Member for Economy, Transport and Environment later in 2022. Feedback will help to inform any decision by the County Council on the proposed changes to supported passenger transport services and the Concessionary Travel Scheme in Hampshire.
