Tell us your views on bus services in Bucks ​

  Whether you are a regular passenger, an occasional user or someone who never uses the bus but has thoughts on how services in Buckinghamshire could be improved, Buckinghamshire Council wants to hear from you.   This week the council has launched its Bus Strategy and Service Improvement survey, aimed at gathering local opinion, in order to feed into a wider plan to improve bus services across the county.   Bus users and the wider public are being encouraged to take a few minutes to complete the online survey which will help the council, in partnership with bus operators, to identify and prioritise improvement measures as part of its Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP).   Peter Martin, Deputy Cabinet Member for Transport said: “In a county such as Buckinghamshire, our bus network provides a vital public service and is a lifeline for many individuals and communities. Whether it is children getting to school, residents popping to the shops or commuters travelling to and from work, buses provide an essential and affordable way for many people to get around.   “We are committed to working in partnership with our local bus operators to help improve services and encourage more people to use public transport. Cutting back on individual car journeys will have a benefit to us all in the longer term and feeds into our vision for reducing carbon emissions across the county.”   Peter added: “It takes no time at all to fill out the survey but your answers are really important so please, I would urge everyone who uses our bus services or has views on how they can be improved to take a few minutes to complete it, thank you.”      The survey will close on Friday 3 September:   https://yourvoicebucks.citizenspace.com/integrated-transport/busstrategy2021/
