Clarifying Oakhill bus route

I WOULD like to clarify the situation regarding the status of Oakhill bus route 65 in Horsham following the comments made by Robert B. Worley about Oakhill route 65 in your July 28 edition.

Despite the recent West Sussex County Council update implying that the whole service is supported, route 65 is already operated commercially by us (ie, without subsidy), except for three peak time journeys: the 08.27 from Oakhill and the 17.23 aand 17.53 round trip journeys from Horsham.

It is these three journeys that are at risk from the bus subsidy review and to which the subsidy rates per journey presumably relate.
