Slough Bus Service Improvement Plan - Public Survey

Closed 1 Oct 2021

Opened 27 Aug 2021

Overview

We consult residents, commuters, businesses and stakeholders to understand what people think about proposed developments, changes to our roads and pavements, or other traffic-related issues.

Why your views matter

Update 23 September 2021:

Survey end date extended to 23:59 on Friday 1 October 2021.

 

Please note this page is for individual residents and the general public. If you are responding on behalf of a school, college, business or organisation, or on behalf of constituents, please instead complete our Stakeholder Survey.

 

We're developing our Bus Service Improvement Plan over the next few months.

The government published its National Bus Strategy (‘Bus Back Better’) in March 2021. It includes £3bn in funding for buses in England (outside London) over the course of this Parliament. The government vision includes:

  • Lower bus fares
  • More frequent bus services
  • Better passenger information
  • More zero-emission buses
  • More people travelling by bus

All Local Transport Authorities in England (outside London) are preparing a Bus Service Improvement Plan, and most (including us) will be introducing an Enhanced Partnership between the Council and the local bus operators. This partnership will set out the actions that we and the bus operators will undertake to improve bus services in Slough.

Please give us your views on buses in Slough:

If you currently use buses, we want to hear if they meet your needs. Are they reliable? Do they go where you want to go, when you want to go? What would make you use buses more often?

And we also want to hear from you if you don’t currently use buses.  Why don’t you use buses at the moment, and what improvements would make you consider using them?

What you tell us will be anonymous, but will be really helpful to us and the bus operators in working out how to improve bus services in Slough.
