The county council is working closely with local bus operators to come up with bold plans to improve public transport – and encouraging more people to use it.
The Government has pledged £3 billion to help progress these plans across the country – and Leicestershire is aiming to secure a fair share of the funding.
However, to secure this funding, the council must develop a Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP). The council needs input to help it develop the plan.
We want to hear from people how they think local bus services can improve - and what would encourage them to use local buses more. Just as importantly, we'd like to hear from people who already use buses, those who currently don't, as well as from public, private and voluntary organisationsPerson:Councillor Ozzy O'Shea, county council cabinet member for highways and transport
There’s a questionnaire at www.leicestershire.gov.uk/bus-strategy-survey for people to have their say. The closing date is Friday, 30th July.
Back in June, the county council's Cabinet discussed the plans, with work now underway to establish an enhanced partnership with local bus operators as the pathway to improving public transport.
