Have your say on plans to improve Herefordshire bus services – Friday 16 July to Sunday 15 August 2021
The government recently published its national bus strategy for England called Bus back better. The strategy is encouraging local authorities to work with bus operators to create plans for improving their local bus services and encouraging more people to use them.
The strategy comes with the promise of £3 billion in funding across England to support this and Herefordshire Council intends to bid for funding to be used locally.
Bus service improvement plan for Herefordshire
In response to the national bus strategy, we will be drafting a bus service improvement plan (BSIP) for Herefordshire, in collaboration with the county’s bus operators, and other stakeholders. We aim to publish the final plan on the councils website in October 2021.
Let us know your views
In drafting the plan, it’s important for us to know what you think would improve local bus services and what would encourage you to use local buses more.
We are keen to hear from people who already use buses and from those who currently don’t. We also want to hear from public, private and voluntary organisations who have an interest in local bus services and making them work better.
We would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete the survey and encourage others to do so. The survey can be found at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/bus-survey.
