Have your say on the city’s buses
BUS users across the city are being encouraged to take part in a new survey and have their say on the service they receive.
The survey — Your Bus Your Say — has been launched by the Scottish Government and Citizens Advice Scotland ahead of the i ntroduction of the Transport Bill next year.
Dundee City Council has t hrown its weight behind the survey to find out what people really think of the country’s bus service.
Mark Flynn, depute convener of the council’s city development committee, said: “Public transport is an emotive and important issue, par ticularly i n Dundee where almost 45% of households don’t have access to a car.
“More than half of Dundonians have been on a bus in the last month but in the past we have found that their voices are simply not being heard by the decision-makers.
“That’s why we are not only encouraging as many people as possible to take part in the survey but we are also offering practical help to complete it.”
Lucy Manson, community action manager at Citizens Advice Scotland, said: “The ultimate aim of the campaign is to get better buses for Scots.
“We’d like people to tell us how satisfied t hey are with t heir current provision — do you want more routes, better timetables information, or something else?”
