Focus on Bus Users: Consultation Questions

Bus Futures

So what would a quality public transport network look like? In the future there will be:

  • A network of frequent local services with stops connected to the local cycle path network, which feed into rail and bus express networks joining major towns.
  • Prepaid and through ticketing available in local outlets / shops
  • East Lothian Councils own buses  become ‘Community Owned’, helping also to connect remote rural communities and joining up the many minibus services used by local groups
  • Buses connect directly to rail services and vice versa
  • People consider bus travel as an option not as a last resort
  • Residents and visitors alike can get around affordably
  • Buses are quieter, run on renewable energy
