MP urged to back TRIP
Honiton transport charity fears squeeze on public spending.
TRIP Community Transport Association is concerned a squeeze on public spending could see the Bus Service Operators Grant reduced.
The grant provides the charity with a fuel duty rebate.
“If this rebate is cut, it could have a serious affect on the sustainability of all rural bus services,” said TRIP’s manager, Neil Hurlock.
He raised his concerns with town clerk Lyn Hargood and both wrote letters, which were given to Mr Parish during a recent visit to Honiton.

“On seeing the letters, he asked for a meeting later that day.” said Mr Hurlock.
Mr Parish has asked for further information and everybody at TRIP was impressed to get a positive and speedy response from him.
