IPSWICH Buses has today announced it will be reducing the frequency of two services linking residential areas to the town centre.

Bosses have blamed the current economic climate for the alterations, which are set to save the company around �100,000 a year.

The changes, which come into force from June 1, will affect bus routes one and three - connecting Ravenswood and Gainsborough to Ipswich town centre and railway station.

The service will no longer operate every ten minutes but will instead be provided at a reduced frequency every 15 minutes.

Ipswich Buses stressed that fares will not be affected by the changes.
