It is being suggested the time is right for the council to review its agreement with Stagecoach to provide these journeys.
They run Monday to Saturday and cost the council an average of £24.49 and £16.33 a day respectively.
That's a total of £12,490 a year.
Council figures suggest only an average seven users a day on Service 34 and just four users on Service 38.
That equates to a subsidy of between £3.50 and £4.08 for each user.
A report prepared for a leading councillor to consider says: "They appear to offer poor value for money."
Later this week, Councillor Nigel Sherwood (Brigg and Wolds), Cabinet Member for Highways and Neighbourhoods, will decide how the council should proceed
One of his options is to give approval for the authority to consult with local ward councillors and members of the public about the withdrawal of these journeys.
