WECA are currently carrying out their ‘Big Choices on Buses’ survey and want to hear your views and ideas on bus travel across the region.
WECA states: Everyone agrees we want a reliable, affordable and safe bus service in the West of England.
But there are big challenges. There is a shortage of bus drivers and the cost of running buses is going
through the roof. So together we need to make big choices on buses.
Where should buses run? What’s a reasonable amount to pay for your fare? Should there be a
focus on urban or rural services? How would you deploy the limited number of bus drivers? What
if the choice is more frequent or more reliable services? Could we use community transport more
effectively? What would encourage more people to choose the bus?
WECA want to hear your views and ideas on these questions and more.
The survey ends on 31 August 2021. For a full list of questions please see here for a printable version of the survey.
The survey can be completed online via the Big Choices on Buses website.
