CALL FOR BUS USERS IN PERTHSHIRE SOUTH & KINROSS-SHIRE TO GIVE THEIR VIEWS ON BUS SERVICES AND SMART TICKETING

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP is encouraging bus users across her constituency to get involved in two new public consultations that will help shape the future of bus services and smart ticketing in Scotland.

Transport Scotland will conduct a number of events and stakeholder workshops to encourage participation in these consultations before they close on 5th December. 

Commenting, Ms Cunningham said: 

“Transport Scotland’s have today launched two new consultations offering the public and stakeholders in Perthshire South & 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 how the future framework for 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 in 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.”
