Gerard Gilder, 72, from Oakham, said: “We want to stop the cutbacks to the current routes and re-instate the ones that have been cut, especially the number nine because it’s a very important route between Oakham and Stamford.

“The cutbacks to services have really affected a lot of people."

Coun Lucy Stephenson, cabinet member for transport at Rutland County Council, said: “We know public transport is something that many people feel very strongly about.

“It’s also an area where the council is committed to working with people to make sure services are fit for purpose and meet local travel needs.

“The Bus Users Group has been created as a way to exchange information and ideas and, ultimately, deliver the best possible transport services within our budget constraints.”

Questions for the meeting must be submitted in advance by e-mail to transport@rutland.gov.uk, or in writing to Transport Team, Rutland County Council, Catmos, Oakham, LE15 6HP, written questions can be handed into the county council office’s main reception or handed in at Rutland’s libraries.
