Review Of Local Bus Service Contracts
Bus users in the county are being asked to give their views on the current level of service, and on potential changes, as bus contracts with Angus Council are set to be renewed.
A large number of local bus services operated under contract to Angus Council are due for renewal in the late spring of 2013.These are services listed below which operate with financial support from the council in order to maintain vital public transport links for the community.
Preparations for the contract renewals are already underway with a number of on-bus surveys recently undertaken to look at the travel patterns of existing bus users and seek their views on the current services.
As part of the contract renewal process, the wider community is being consulted in order to reveal any unmet travel demands and identify requests for changes to the current service provision, and so tailor services to the needs of local residents, as well as ensuring best value for money.
Those people wishing to make comments can do so as follows:
- By using the Have Your Say section of Angus Councils website;
- By e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org;
- In writing to: Transport Team, Infrastructures Services, County Buildings, Market Street, Forfar DD8 3LG;
- By telephone on Forfar (01307) 461775 between 08:45 and 17:00 Monday to Friday.
Comments and suggestions should reach Angus Council no later than Friday 3 August 2012 for consideration prior to issuing tenders to bus operators in mid-September 2012.
