East Lothian Council subsidises a number of bus services on routes where no alternative route exists, and where commercial bus operators would not be able to cover their costs if they delivered a service. Where a need is identified, the Council may subsidise a commercial operator to cover a whole route, or part of a route at a particular time of the day.
Do we have need for a public bus service to Morham and Garvald? It is difficult to live here without owning a car? Are there non-drivers, like teenagers or older people who would benefit? Could we see a situation where families could manage with one less car?
