Have a say on school travel cuts
People are being asked for their views on proposals by the city council to cut some school transport.
Leicester City Council wants to save about £500,000 a year by scrapping free transport for children travelling to faith schools which are further away than their nearest school.
It is also considering axing subsidised transport for post-16 students living more than three miles from their school.
A consultation into the proposed cuts runs until January 14, 2013. If approved, the changes will take effect from September, 2013. It is estimated they could affect more than 200 pupils at faith schools.

Councillor Vi Dempster, assistant city mayor responsible for children, young people and schools, said: "Council budgets are being hit hard by Government settlements.
"This consultation gives pupils, parents and carers the chance to make their views known, and I would strongly urge people to participate so that their views can be taken into account."
