Bus Service Improvement Plan for Luton – Give us your views

In response to the National Bus Strategy, we will be drafting a bus service improvement plan (BSIP) for Luton, in collaboration with our bus operators, and other stakeholders.

In drafting the plan, it's important for us to know what you think would improve local bus services and what would encourage you to use local buses more. Our bus service improvement survey asks for views from people who already use buses and from those who currently don't.

We also wanted to hear from public, private and voluntary organisations who have an interest in local bus services and making them work better.

Please complete our bus service improvement plan survey
