North Yorkshire's bus subsidies could be cut by £2 million - almost double what was originally planned - if proposals get the go ahead by the County Council.

The council's executive will meet today to make its final decision on bus subsidies - and it is faced with a choice between a smaller £1.3 million cut, which could save many routes, or the full £2 million scheme.

Transport bosses want bigger savings than the £1.1 million  - which was put out to public consultation last year -  to plug the hole in the county council's budget.

The report says withdrawing the subsidy from town and poorly performing services could save £1.3 million without affecting the wider bus network, but it urges councillors to approve deeper savings.

The County Council has to make savings of £92 million in the four years ending on 31st March, 2015.
