Local bus services - we want your views
Buckinghamshire County Council helps to fund a number of local bus routes and it's really important we spend the money where people need it. That's why we're carrying out a survey of the bus routes we support - to make sure that they're serving areas people need them to.
The County Council spends more than £2 million a year supporting public transport to areas where there is a social need.
People who use any of the forty County-supported routes are being invited to complete a survey during the next six weeks to establish local needs, usage trends, aspirations, and possible future use.
The last across-the-board review was in 2014, and Paul Irwin, Deputy Transport Cabinet Member, said: "Population shift and demographic change affect the use of public transport and impact on residents' needs. It’s a shifting landscape, and the arrangements we put in place four or five years ago probably no longer match use and requirements."
The survey can be completed online at www.buckscc.gov.uk/bussurvey and printed copies will be available at libraries, parish councils and from bus drivers on the 40 routes. The closing date is Friday 20 July.
