Residents asked for thoughts on Growth Deal's green bus revolution
WHAT would make you use the bus more often? That’s the question being asked of Moray residents, who are being asked to give their thoughts on public transport.
Local views will shape the £4 million Bus Revolution project included in Moray’s £100 million Growth Deal, which aims to transform the local bus offering – not to compete with existing services, but to plug the gaps, particularly for rural residents. The project is being funded by the Scottish Government and Moray Council.
Moray’s award-winning on-demand bus service will be extended, with investment in low-carbon electric buses and the use of apps to improve response times and, ultimately, the customer experience. Facilities such as onboard Wi-Fi will also be considered.
Residents are being asked to fill out the survey to reflect their use and perception of public transport pre-Covid, considering factors like affordability, frequency of buses, reliability, distance to a bus stop, and convenience.
The online survey is live until the end of October, and responses will be viewed by the Bus Revolution project board.
