ITV West Country has learned that drastic cuts are to be made in bus services in Cornwall.
One of the main bus operators, Western Greyhound, is closing its depot in Penzance, which will mean fewer routes in west Penwith.
It's understood 12 drivers will also lose their jobs.
Services provided by First Western and smaller operators are also likely to be cut.
Cornwall Council says a cut in its subsidy from the Government means it can't afford to pay the operators to run some routes.
