Public Consultation on Supported Bus Services

Closed 30 Sep 2016

Opened 22 Aug 2016

Results Updated 11 Jan 2017



Improving Public Transport has been a high priority for the council for over a decade, and continues to be as part of our corporate plan 2014-2017. We have had many major transport schemes over the years including the Greater Bristol Bus Network and the current MetroBus project.

This survey will form part of the Council’s review and assessment of supported bus services (excluding Park and Ride). We are seeking your views on our supported bus services, how they can be improved and what they will look like in the future, within the current financial climate.

Why We Are Consulting

The Council has worked hard to make savings over the past 5 years including saving £1.5million from the supported bus services budget, which was achieved with a relatively small loss of access as many of the services were taken on commercially. Due to the continued tightening in national funding we remain vigilant that further savings maybe required from the supported services budget, and if so that we would have to prioritise our spending in this area. Should any savings be required the Council will need to determine how to affect savings by reducing the number of services it supports. This assessment will be based on feedback from this consultation, the impact on the network, tender prices and value for money.
Please note this could result in cuts to your local supported bus service so it is important that you make your views heard so they can form part of the review.

This survey closes on Friday 30th September.
