Public are encouraged to have their say on buses
Members of the public are being invited to have their say on two public consultations on the future of bus services across Scotland.
Transport Scotland is holding a number of events and want feedback on bus services and smart ticketing.
The two consultations will run until Tuesday, December 5.
Now, Roseanna Cunningham, MSP for Perthshire South and Kinross-shire, is encouraging her constituents to get involved in the consultations.
She said:“Transport Scotland have today launched two new consultations offering the public and stakeholders in Perthshire South and Kinross-shire an important opportunity to have their say on how best to improve Scotland’s bus services.
“In order to develop an effective, joined up, Scotland-wide smart ticketing and payment service, it is important that as many transport operators, public bodies and users as possible are consulted.
“As a frequent bus user myself, I want to see as many people as possible sharing their views to help make Scotland’s bus services the best they can be.
“While not about individual local bus services, these parallel consultations into the future of the framework within local bus services should operate and the development of more efficient ticketing systems are a great opportunity to influence the way in which public transport in this country is taken forward on years to come.
“As well as those announced today, there are three other consultations already ongoing - into roadworks, concessionary travel and low emission zones in which those with an interest in public transport might consider participating.”
