Total Transport Consultation 18th March - 13th May
Cambridgeshire County Council are surveying the parents and carers of children who use school transport, people who use council transport to get to day centres, and local bus and community transport users.
The County Council want to find out what people think about proposed changes to transport services in the Total Transport Pilot area, which covers the northern part of East Cambridgeshire. The County Council need to find out what people think in order to plan future transport services.
Total Transport is about bringing different types of transport together (school buses, day centre minibuses, community transport, etc). It often doesn't make sense to send multiple vehicles out to the same area to pick up people living close to each other, just because they're travelling for different purposes. The County Council understand there are many subtleties involved in this, which is why your feedback is needed.
