Passenger transport

Passenger transport is changing in Leicestershire and, at the same time as the county council is facing significant challenges, we are also trying to offer a better service for residents.

The county council has developed a new Passenger Transport Policy and Strategy (PTPS) to ensure its passenger transport provision is fit for purpose and cost-effective.

We are reviewing all contracted services across the county and will be providing regular updates on the progress of the review. We are also inviting people to community engagement workshops so they can help shape the services for the future.
