SCC Survey for the Future Of Surrey Buses
Have your say on buses
Surrey County Council has launched a nine-week consultation on the future for bus services in Surrey. The consultation is seeking residents’ views on three areas:
- Investing in cleaner, greener buses - to help reduce the 41% of carbon emissions generated by transport
- Introducing more on-demand services - shared, door-to-door bus services in rural areas that are available when needed, using a booking service
- Changing some bus services - reducing a very small amount of bus services. This is because people are using buses less and they are also more expensive to run. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, 27 million passenger trips were made each year on Surrey buses. Trips have since reduced to 18 million.
An online survey and more information is available at www.surreycc.gov.uk/futurebusreview. Paper copies of the survey will also be available at Surrey Libraries, at Surrey County Council offices in Reigate, Leatherhead and Woking, on buses and on request by calling Surrey County Council on 03456 009 009.
The consultation will run from 3 November to 6 January 2023.
