ECan is canning the Edgeware to Northlands bus route just before Christmas because too few people have been using the service.
The cancellation is expected to come into force in early December.
Changes to the bus services in Christchurch are being made because ECan is facing a deficit of more than $5 million and drop in bus usage of more than 30 per cent. The commercial centre of Christchurch has devolved to suburban areas
