Following the Governments National Bus Strategy, North Yorkshire County Council are wanting to gain feedback from people in the county (whether they use buses or not) about how they can create better bus services.
Some examples were given for any suggestions you might want to make:
- Should infrastructure to benefit buses be improved?
- Should better information be available?
- Should fares be consistent?
Cllr Don Mackenzie, Executive Member for Access, said:
“Across North Yorkshire, buses play a vital role in supporting rural communities and helping residents to remain independent. Efficient bus services also enable and encourage us to leave our cars at home in favour of more sustainable transport, which reduces congestion, improves air quality, and helps us to keep fit.
“Through this consultation, we want to learn what developments are important to you, so that when the Department for Transport announces the funding the county will receive, we can prioritise the most effective measures.
“This consultation is about those countywide changes that can make a real difference. In this instance, we are not focusing on specific routes or services.”
A report containing the feedback will be sent to the County Council’s Executive in March with the changes coming into effect from 1st April 2022.
