Council 'considering' Borders bus cut proposals

Scottish Borders Council says it will be considering First Group's proposals to cut bus routes in the region.

First Scotland East informed the Council this week of its proposals as part of an overall review of its South East of Scotland operations. We will be considering these proposals during the four week consultation period First are required to undertake with the Council.

Anyone who wishes to make their views known on the proposals should contact First directly.

The Council will be consulting separately on its subsidised bus services later this summer.

– Scottish Borders Council spokesperson
