Bedford Borough Council wants to hear your views on local bus services.

Your responses will help the Council establish its priorities and what the most important things are for residents, when it invites bids to run the rural bus services across Bedford Borough later this year.

The Council is looking to understand how residents of the Borough currently use transport, if this has changed during COVID, and how the public transport offer could be improved in the future.

Cllr Charles Royden, portfolio holder for transport, said:

“Buses are a safe, clean and greener way to travel. We want to know how we can make our bus services even better and we need your help.

“Whether you are a bus user, never used a bus, have done in the past but not recently- please let us know your views.”

Residents and interested parties can have their say via the quick and easy form on the Council website at Bus Travel or by calling 01234 718005. The deadline for responses is Friday 11 June 2021
