Bus fares up, services to be cut

Tomorrow public transport fares in Adelaide are set to rise by about 10%, whereas today The Advertiser and the ABC report that significant cutbacks to services are being planned (the draft is "97% complete" according to a spokesman for the company which runs most of the buses) .

According to the ABC report

Executive director of the [Transport] department's Public Transport Division Heather Webster says the plan will not cut services or save money.She says some people may have to catch their bus at a different time or from a different place.

Different time, different place but no cuts or savings? Something doesn't quite ring true here.
