Welcome

Many of the bus routes serving rural areas of Buckinghamshire need ongoing financial support from the County Council to operate. We want as many people as possible in our village communities to have access to public transport, so you can get out and about and do what’s important to you, such as go to the doctors, the shops or visit friends and family.  We need to plan carefully to make sure we use this money as effectively as possible.

It’s now five years since we looked in detail at our council supported bus routes and how they are used. Between then and now a lot has changed and we’d like to understand how current bus services are being used. We’ll use this information to review how future services can better meet people’s travel patterns, and this may include revising existing routes and timetables or looking at alternatives such as community transport or other flexible transport services.

Please take a few moments to complete the following survey, which is open for responses between 7 June 2018 and 20 July 2018. We’ll review all the feedback from the survey this summer, and later in 2018 we’ll carry out a consultation on any proposed changes. Updates on this review are available on our website and enquiries can be emailed to passtrans@buckscc.gov.uk or by calling the Public Transport Team on 01296 382416.

Many thanks for helping us to shape the future of your local bus services.

Deputy Cabinet Member for Transport
