SALISBURY residents can participate in a consultation to inform decision-making about the investment into public transport across the region.

A draft public transport policy has been prepared by Wiltshire Council which will outline the principles for promoting and supporting road-based public transport in all forms across the county.

The results of the consultation will enable Wiltshire Council to make informed decisions in respect of its environmental, social, and economic objectives.

The report aims to provide a guide to the current and future needs for public transport and includes:

  • Encouraging residents to choose public transport for journeys to and from work
  • Enabling people to visit attractions without having to rely on a car.
  • Ensuring residents can access essential facilities and services when using public transport

The consultation requires input from residents in Salisbury and across the county to have a say on the future of bus services and other public transport options. 

Wiltshire Council states the response to the consultation has been good to date but more submissions are needed from both bus users and non-bus users.

The consultation ends on Friday, November 10 and the survey can be found here
