SNP MSP Gordon Macdonald is encouraging bus users across Edinburgh Pentlands to get involved in two new public consultations that will help shape the future of bus services and smart ticketing in Scotland.
Transport Scotland will conduct a number of events and stakeholder workshops to encourage participation in these consultations before they close on 5th December.
Commenting, SNP MSP Gordon Macdonald said, “Millions of people across Scotland use buses every day.
“Transport Scotland’s two new consultations offer the public and stakeholders in Edinburgh an important opportunity to have their say on how best to improve Scotland’s bus services.
“In order to develop an effective, joined up, Scotland-wide smart ticketing and payment service, it is important that as many transport operators, public bodies and users as possible are consulted.”
The two consultation can be found below: -
1. Local Bus Services in Scotland – Improving the Framework for Delivery
2. The Future of Smart Ticketing
Please take the opportunity to let the Scottish Government know in order to shape the services you receive.
