Have your say on the future of bus services and other public transport in Wiltshire

Wiltshire Council is asking public transport users, residents, businesses and communities in the county to have their say on the future of bus services and other public transport options.

People’s comments will help to inform the council’s draft Public Transport Policy, which aims to support road-based public transport countywide to help achieve the council's environmental, social, and economic goals.

The Public Transport Policy aims to:

  • Ensure that residents can access essential facilities and services using public transport, promoting a high quality of life for all.
  • Encourage residents to choose public transport for their daily journeys to and from work, reducing traffic congestion and carbon emissions.
  • Provide reliable and convenient public transport options for visitors to Wiltshire, enabling them to explore the county’s attractions without relying on private cars.
  • The consultation provides an opportunity for people and organisations to voice their opinions, share their experiences, and propose ideas that will help shape the future of public transport in Wiltshire.
  • Cllr Caroline Thomas, Cabinet Member for Transport, said:

    “We are committed to creating a more sustainable and accessible public transport system that enhances the lives of our residents, supports our local economy, and preserves our beautiful county. But we need the help of our communities to do this, and that’s why I’d urge people to take part in this consultation and have their say. Your feedback is invaluable in helping us achieve these objectives, so please participate in the consultation and let your voice be heard.”

    The council’s Business Plan sets out its mission to have vibrant, well-connected communities, with an increased use of public transport to help reduce carbon emissions.

    The consultation begins on Friday 29 September and ends at 23:59 on Friday 6 November. To find out more and to take part in the survey, people should go to: https://wiltshirebusreview.commonplace.is/
