Dozens of bus services connecting some of the most rural places in Oxfordshire are set to be cut.
At an Oxford County Council cabinet meeting, councillors have recommended axing council subsidies for more than 100 routes across the area including the Henley to Wallingford service, Wantage to Faringdon and the Wychwoods service.
The council needs to make £50m of cuts over the next four years and is looking to save around £2.3m a year on bus route subsidies. The recommendations will now go before a full council meeting, where councillors will decide whether to accept or reject them.
Oxford County Council currently pays bus companies £3.6m a year to run 105 bus routes that would not be commercially viable.
Local campaigners warn that cutting the services mean that many people could end up isolated and unable to travel, particularly elderly people and those without cars.
