Your chance to demand better buses

BRB response

Patrick has given his backing to a proposed bill to re-regulate bus services in Scotland, and he is asking all bus users to make their voice heard too.

Iain Gray MSP has opened a consultation on his proposed Bus Regulation Bill.

If enacted, this would give local transport authorities far greater powers to shape the services we make use of on a daily basis.

This is an opportunity for bus users, and for people interested in Scotland having a better bus service, to have their say.
