Oxfordshire County Council will use £275,000 of its existing Local Authority Bus Subsidy Grant from the Government to provide short-term interim support to bus services that would otherwise have to stop next month.
Three routes are being saved in full through the interim grant, with the other nine having specific routes, journeys or days of operation being supported.
Councillor Tim Bearder, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways Management, said: “Helping to improve the county’s bus services is one of the key aims of this administration when it comes to transport.”
