    Surrey County Council is responsible for sourcing sustainable, safe, secure and reliable local bus services as defined by the Transport Acts 1985 and 2000. These services enable residents to access employment, education, medical appointments, essential food shopping and other key services.

     

    At Cabinet on 26 June 2018, a report was considered detailing the proposed award of fifteen contracts for local bus services. Nine of these were approved but a decision on the other six (to BETC Ltd.) was deferred and delegated to the Cabinet Member for Environment & Transport for a subsequent decision, in consultation with the Executive Director Highways, Transport & Environment and the S.151 Officer.

     

    Current contracts expire on 31 August 2018 and will seamlessly be replaced by new contracts for a three year period.

     

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    That following consideration of the results of the tendering process in Part 2 of this meeting, the award of six bus contracts be made to these operators: Stagecoach South Ltd., C E Jeatt & Son Ltd. (White Bus), Falcon Coaches Ltd. and Metrobus Ltd.
