A consultation on the bus strategy for Essex has launched.
The consultation, launched by Essex County Council called Getting around in Essex, will help the council listen to residents’ views on how to improve the county’s bus and passenger transport network.
The consultation runs until March 31, with the questionnaire helping the council and its partners to review the bus service currently delivered across the county to shape the service to deliver greater economic and social benefits for the people who travel around and work in Essex.
Essex County Councillor Rodney Bass, cabinet member for highways and transportation, said: “This strategy will focus on building long term and sustained partnerships with bus operators to strengthen the network and grow passenger numbers.
“It will help review current services, look at getting better value from the transport services the council supports and reduce overall costs without significantly impacting services.”
