Event Details

 How reliable is the bus service in Leicester? What do you think would encourage more people to use buses in Leicester?

Come to our event and help inform the inquiry into the bus market.


The big issue

According to the annual statistics from the Department for Transport (DfT), the use of bus services in England is declining. Although bus use per person has increased in London by 52% over the last 25 years, it has fallen by 40% in other metropolitan areas.

The House of Commons Transport Committee want to find out how bus services are run in different areas across England, outside London, and what factors are affecting bus use.

At the event, we will be asking you about:

  • Your experience of using buses in Leicester
  • How the bus service is run
  • Bus fares
  • The reliability of the bus service
  • Factors that affect bus use


How can you help?

  • Do you have experience (good or bad) with the bus service in Leicester?
  • Are you somebody who relies on buses to get to work, health appointments or your place of study?
  • Are you part of an organisation that campaigns about transport in or around Leicester?

If so, come to our event and help shape the inquiry.

Refreshments will be provided.
