A report will be presented to Leicestershire County Council’s ruling cabinet tomorrow outlining plans to share out funding equally between the county’s 13 transport providers. Groups are currently funded by the council to provide transport for mobility impaired passengers through community minibus services and volunteer drivers using their own cars.

Plans to reduce the community transport budget by 10 per cent, with changes phased in gradually to reduce the impact on providers and passengers will be among the proposals discussed.
