Our consultation on a new policy and strategy for public transport has now closed


Passenger transport consultation now closed

Thank you for your responses - the consultation closed on 13 June

A report setting out the next steps is due to discussed by the cabinet later in the year

The county council continues to face significant financial challenges with budget plans recently announced to save another £50m across all areas of the council.

One of the ways to make the best use of money available is to ensure passenger transport services best meet the essential transport needs of people in attending health appointments, making shopping trips and, in some cases, into employment.

We've been consulting over the past 12 weeks on a new passenger transport policy and strategy which will help to ensure we meet our statutory duties, while achieving the best use of money in supporting local passenger transport services.



The consultation ran from 21 March to midnight on 13 June.
