Consultation on the future of Hertfordshire bus services

THE future of spending on bus services in Hertfordshire will be discussed in a consultation, which will start on Monday.

Stuart Pile, executive member for highways and transport, said: “In our draft bus strategy we set out how we intend to spend public money on the county’s bus network.

“The strategy determines how we will work with commercial bus operators and how we will prioritise the limited amount of money available.

“In the difficult economic climate it’s vital that we identify the best way to use our resources. The new strategy aims to give us the flexibility to make the best use of our money in the short term, while setting out a plan for how we will develop the bus network over the next 20 years.”

The consultation will be available to respond to online from March 28 at www.hertsdirect.org/passengertransport or you can call 0300 123 4050 to request a paper copy.
