Saddleworth residents are reminded to have their say on public transport
Transport leaders are reminding people in Saddleworth to give their views on how public transport in the area could be improved.
Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) launched a public transport survey on 24 October and residents have until 30 November 2016 to complete it.
The results of the survey will support the development of potential interventions to make the transport network better suited to the needs of Saddleworth residents.
The survey is funded by the Department for Transport’s Total Transport Pilot Fund to deliver joined up and efficient transport links specifically in rural areas.
Councillor Andrew Fender, Chair of the TfGM Committee, said: “We want to find out where Saddleworth residents travel to and how, and what people think about public transport. The closing date for the survey is now approaching and we’re reminding everyone who is yet to fill in the survey to do so by 30 November.
“All comments received will help to inform recommendations for improving transport in Saddleworth, so we can start to target interventions that will better connect people with work, education, shops, leisure, health and local services, as well as friends and family.”
The survey is available now to complete online at www.tfgm.com/saddleworth. Hard copies have been distributed to Saddleworth residents and are also available for collection at Uppermill Library, Saddleworth libraries, doctors surgeries, Uppermill Civic Hall and Saddleworth Medical Centre.
