Earlier this year, the Government published a new National Bus Strategy which sets out a framework for how bus services can recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, with a vision for future improvements to bus provision.
To meet this challenge, Oxfordshire County Council is collecting views of the general public and from local Stakeholders to create a Bus Service Improvement Plan. This will involve developing bold plans for improving Oxfordshire’s bus services and encouraging more people to use them. Government has pledged £3 billion in funding across the country to help deliver these plans, and Oxfordshire is aiming to secure as much as it can of that funding.
You can offer feedback here: https://letstalk.oxfordshire.gov.uk/oxfordshire-bus-improvement-plan-2021. The Council would welcome any personal views through the General Public survey, and very much welcome any publicity of this survey, for example on local websites or newsletters.
In addition, the County Council is also asking all Oxfordshire Towns and Parishes to provide a single overall response for their Council. Please get in touch with your Town or Parish clerk (or equivalent) to work with them on providing the response for your Council and send your responses to: [email protected]
The closing date for responses for both the Town / Parish and the General Public engagement is Monday 13th September.
