Bus route changes

Bus users in the county are being asked to give their views on the current level of service, and on potential changes, as bus contracts with Angus Council are set to be renewed.

A large number of local bus services operated under contract to Angus Council are due for renewal in the late spring of 2013. These are services which operate with financial support from the council in order to maintain vital public transport links for the community.

Preparations for the contract renewals are already underway with a number of on-bus surveys recently undertaken to look at the travel patterns of existing bus users and seek their views on the current services.

Those people wishing to make comments can do so by using the ‘Have Your Say’ section of Angus Council’s website at www.angus.gov.uk; by e-mailing PLNTransport@angus.gov.uk; writing to: Transport Team, Infrastructures Services, County Buildings, Market Street, Forfar DD8 3LG or calling 01307 461775 between 8.45am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

Comments and suggestions should reach Angus Council no later than Friday, August 3.
