When it became apparent the 747 Uppingham to Leicester bus was under threat, Uppingham Town Council led a campaign to save it, the Deputy Mayor Stephen Rozak even spent a week travelling on it, talking to passengers and finding out who used it, and how many passengers it has. After an agreed £40,000 subsidy through the support of Rutland & Leicestershire County Councils and the Parish Councils along the route, it's now set for profitablity after a small fair increase and only going as far into the city as the bus station, so it doesn't get clogged up in Leicester traffic. If passenger numbers remain the same, it's now commercially viable.
