Nottingham City Council is proposing to reduce funding for Linkbus services and as a result, some routes will have to be reduced or withdrawn.
One route facing the axe is the L9 city route – which serves passengers in Arnold and Mapperley.
A consultation is now being held over the plans, which gives those using the service the opportunity to voice their concerns.
The proposal for the L9 service, which also covers Sherwood and Bestwood Park, reads: “The two largest key areas (Edwards Lane Estate and Winchester Court/Woodthorpe Court) served by NCT 40 every 30 minutes. We are looking at low cost options for those parts of the L9 at Mildenhall Crescent and Sherwood Vale that are beyond 400m of another bus service.”
A spokesman for Nottingham City Council said: “The council is facing very serious budget challenges, and is having to make some extremely difficult decisions on the services we provide. This includes a proposal to reduce funding for our Linkbus services.
“We are proposing to limit the effect on services through timetable changes, diversions on existing services, and withdrawing services where journeys can be made by another operator. This way we can ensure we continue to provide services to the city and district centres for people living more than 400m away from a commercial bus or tram stop.
“A public consultation is now running until February 22.”
The bus firm said a final decision over services will be made in March.
