Gloucestershire Bus Service Survey

Gloucestershire County Council is currently undertaking a bus survey.

The Integrated Transport Unit (ITU) seeks to maintain the public transport network in such a way that it enables people to maintain independence and access employment, education, medical care and essential shopping, whilst working within a budget.

In 2011, Gloucestershire County Council undertook a major review of its subsidised bus network, which resulted in a complete redesign of many services. The county council now wants to understand how public transport is working for people and how well people's essential transport needs are met.

‘Thinktravel’ travel advisors have been issuing surveys across Gloucestershire to both bus users and non-bus users. The aim of this public transport engagement is to collect qualitative and quantitative data which will help to understand the success of the existing network. Feedback obtained from the 2014 Local Transport Plan stakeholder groups sessions will also be taken into account.

During March community organisations are being asked for further comment on subsidised bus services across Gloucestershire and in particular the services which are of most use to their local community. The link to the survey is below.

The deadline for completion has been extended to 24th April 2015. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/bus_survey_GCC
