Shropshire Bus Campaign launch, Saturday 29th June 2019, Theatre Severn, 
1400-1700

I am writing to invite you to the launch of a Shropshire-wide bus 
campaign aimed at producing a serious improvement in Shropshire’s buses 
so that buses can make a significant contribution to meeting the needs 
of rural and market town residents in Shropshire.  Buses are essential 
if residents are to have access to work, training, colleges, NHS 
facilities, shops, banks and other routine destinations and they need to 
run 7 days a week and at times that suit passengers.  Buses are also 
important to support rural tourism and the tourism economy and for many 
of our older residents who are finding driving difficult or for health 
reasons have to give up driving.

The Shropshire campaign is funded by a national organisation, the 
Foundation for Integrated Transport and is part of a national initiative 
to promote bus use and improvements in bus services in ways that benefit 
everyone.  At the national level we are arguing for additional funds to 
support bus services and for changes in the regulatory environment to 
make sure that buses connect with other buses and with all train 
stations.

We have produced a report on buses in Shropshire which argues for 
improvements and makes suggestions for ways in which Shropshire Council 
can do more to support integrated bus services and more actively support 
rural residents.

The report can be found here:
