Our friends in Get Glasgow Moving have sent us encouragement to respond to the Local Bus Services consultation, as well as the Smart Ticketing consultation, which both close at midnight on 5 December 2017. Both these are being run by the Scottish Government. The associated papers are moderately technical and perhaps overly complicated but please do respond to both before the closing date.
The better our bus services, the more people will use them, the less traffic congestion there will be, the less pollution there will be and the better our towns and cities will be for those of us who walk and cycle.
Smart ticketing seems to be a no-brainer and the sooner it is brought in for travel throughout Scotland the better. It will make using public transport easier for us all.
