8. Overall, to what extent do you agree or disagree that the Public Transport Policy will provide an efficient bus network that meets user needs for priority journeys?

Tend to Disagree

8a. Why do you say this?

At the moment bus services in the Salisbury are are not good. buses failing to turn up or being taken out of service at a moments notice. can it been guaranteed that this will improve in future?

10. Up to what age should young people be entitled to cheaper travel?

18 years old

11. What fare level should apply to young people?

Free travel

13. Do you have any other comments, including on any other elements of the draft Public Transport Policy?

Recently PR7 bus stop for the bus I use most frequently PR7 has been moved from Blue Boar Row, Salisbury to adjacent to Tesco Castle Street, Salisbury. There is no where there for people to sit and wait for buses and those of use with mobility issues are forced to perch on the windowsill of the nearby restaurant. It ridiculous to move the bus stop and a complete waste of a bus shelter with seating. Apart from the fact buses stopping on the corner of Castle St causes congestion in view of the fact all buses most of the city have to use castle street whilst improvements are made in Fisherton Street.

8. Overall, to what extent do you agree or disagree that the Public Transport Policy will provide an efficient bus network that meets user needs for priority journeys?

Tend to Disagree

8a. Why do you say this?

Every bus review leaves my road with less access, it is now one bus every 2 hours starting at 9.35am finishing at 17.12pm apart from an early work and school bus. For various reasons the bus can be late needing medical appointments etc. To be made with this in mind at best I only 1 hour for pharmacy and shopping - often pharmacy takes most of that hour. Doctors surgery only 45 mins. allowing for time to walk to and from bus this leaves me often with a 2 hour wait for a bus or a long walk home, the last part without pavement and is very busy as now classed as an A road. Buses that are timed so a passenger can change from one bus to another often do not work as buses can be late for many reasons. unfortunately my experiences of this option were all unseccessful and I gave up as it was a long walk home

9. If there are any policies you do not support at all, please could you explain why?

If access needs on a commercial basis the area I live is unlikely to do well for transport. Other parts of this town have much higher population and have the benefit of many more buses. and have gained the the buses my road has previously lost even though they already had more buses than available in this road. I support low & zero emission vehicles but I am not sure that at the moment they would cope with the many narrow winding roads that make up rural journeys causing breakdowns etc.

10. Up to what age should young people be entitled to cheaper travel?

16 years old

11. What fare level should apply to young people?

Free travel

13. Do you have any other comments, including on any other elements of the draft Public Transport Policy?

High frequency of buses would be great but high quality often means a more direct service between towns, thus a shorter journey. Usually to the detriment to the people living in the more rural parts of towns.
