Got a problem with Public Transport in Bath and North East Somerset?

Do you have a grumble about Public Transport in Bath?

If so we want to know about it.

Although public transport is no longer under local authority control it is still important that your local council are kept aware of the problems which people face when trying to use public transport.

Councillor David Dixon (Lib Dem, Walcot) who also Chairs the Council's Planning Transportation Economy and Sustainability Overview and Scruntiny Panel would like to hear your concerns.

The website has been launched by Cllr Dixon in order to act as a vehicle for residents to share their problems surrounding public transport.

Fed up with late buses? Fares too high? Buses too dirty? Please let us know about it! I will share these comments with the Planning, Transport, Economy and Sustainability Overview and Scrutiny Panel will also call for the companies which provide our public transport services to address these problems!

Cllr Dixon says, "To get a discussion item on the blog visitors must first email and I will add this to the blog. Residents can then contribute to the discussion by adding a comment on the site. I hope that this can be used to an extent as evidence to give to operators and to be shared with my fellow councillors to highlight some of the issues which passengers have. Any praise for the services are also welcome and will be passed on."
