Surrey County Council Response to Covid-19: providing support to service providers- Bus route 461

Bus route 461 is a key route to St Peter’s Hospital normally running every 30min. Fare income has reduced a result of fewer passengers due to Covid-19. In order to maintain the service at a level which would support key workers accessing an NHS primary care facility, additional funding of £450 per day was agreed for three months from 1st April to 30th June 2020.  Patronage has not increased as hoped, and the service continues to suffer reduced fare income.  In order to maintain this essential service further support of £300 per day is required from 1st July to 31st August, with an expected total cost of £12,900, which will be partially funded through Covid Bus Service Support Grant.
