The Council is undertaking a ‘clean-sheet’ review of the local bus, and dial-a-bus, services that it financially supports, to assist the decision-making on how to prioritise spend.
A survey seeking the views of Aberdeenshire residents and communities to identify travel priorities and preferences is being launched. It is vital that the consultation survey attracts not just existing passenger transport service users, but engages with as wide an audience as possible in order to help the Council understand the areas where provision of bus services is affecting people’s ability to access key destinations and activities.
The questionnaire focuses on ascertaining views on how best to provide supported bus services and can be completed as individuals or on behalf of an organisation.
A link to the questionnaire will be available on the Council’s web site from 28 October 2019 (https://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/roads-and-travel/public-transport/policies-strategies-and-contracts/), with printed copies planned to be available in local libraries, Aberdeenshire Council offices, Ellon Park & Ride, and Peterhead Interchange, from 2 November 2019, for those who cannot access the web site.
The survey will run until Monday 9 December 2019
