As part of Northamptonshire County Council’s consultation on the future of public transport in the county, two more public engagement events have been announced to help people have a say on the proposals.
The council has announced measures on how it could provide public transport on greatly reduced budgets by combining traditional bus services, community transport and innovative demand response services.
The two additional dates, both evening events, are:
|Wednesday, 18 May ||2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. ||The Town Hall, 86 Watling Street, Towcester NN12 6BS|
|Monday, 23 May ||2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. ||The Court Room, The Guildhall, St Giles Square, Northampton NN1 1DE|
|Monday, May 23 ||7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. ||The Court Room, The Guildhall, St Giles Square, Northampton NN1 1DE|
|Wednesday, May 25 ||7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. ||The Cornmarket Hall, London Road, Kettering NN15 7QA|
The authority has examined every settlement in the county and used a number of criteria to assess what sort of transport would provide the best solution for a particular area.
People have until May 27 to comment on the proposals and it is expected that the new transport systems would be introduced in September.
