  • There are many types of transport used across the county

    • Buses are the most commonly used method of transport.

    • Cars provided by family, friends or carers are important and flexible way of getting out.

    • Trains are good for getting to places but can be confusing and expensive.

    • Taxis are costly, but sometimes they are the only option.

  • Buses

    • Good Things

      • Bus passes enable people to get out and do things.

      • Buses are easy to use in some areas as they have low floors and are more accessible.

      • Some areas have lots of bus routes so people can get where they want to go.

      • Some bus drivers are helpful and friendly.

  • Buses

    • Bad Things - continued

      • Some buses are old and don’t have low floors, which can make getting on and off them difficult.

      • Different types of bus passes can be confusing, people don’t know when and where they can be used.

      • Buses often run late or sometimes they leave earlier than they are supposed to. This makes people anxious.

      • Buses sometimes drive past people when they are waiting at a bus stop.

  • Other Transport

  • Coaches are seen as an affordable way to go on long journeys.

  • Community Transport is available but needs to be pre-booked a long time in advance.

  • Good Neighbour schemes are good value but they work differently in each area. Not many people seem to use them.

    • What Could Be Better?

  • More affordable transport, available at the times people want it

  • Having training to do new journeys until people are happy to do them independently.

  • More accessible travel information, including timetables and speaking information boards. Having people available at bus stations who can be asked for information

  • Services that run on time, with more buses, trains and routes

  • Improved staff training to understand people’s needs

    • Reps Questions

  • What can be done to give us affordable transport outside of normal hours, to allow us to go out safely in the evenings and at weekends?

  • What could be done to make travel information more accessible, including timetables, signs & announcements and travel planning?

  • What will transport providers do to make sure that our extra transport needs are met? This should include staff training.
