Have a Say on Bus Services
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. More »
It wants to find out what people think would improve local bus services and what would encourage them to use local buses more.
It would like to hear from people who already use buses, those who currently don't, as well as from public, private and voluntary organisations.
