People who use public transport in Walsall are being offered the chance to give transport chiefs their views about the area’s network. The ‘Your Public Transport Matters’ event will enable the travelling public to talk directly with representatives from Network West Midlands – the region’s integrated bus, rail and tram system.
Staff from the bus, rail and tram operators will be on hand to meet passengers between 1pm and 6pm on September 13 in the Centro marquee being set up in St Pauls, close to Walsall’s bus station.
The event has been organised by Centro, the West Midlands’ integrated transport authority.
Feedback from members of the public will be looked at closely by transport bosses and used to make improvements to the local bus, tram and rail network.
Kerry Meredith, Principal Officer (Customer Relations) at Centro, said: “The event provides us with a perfect opportunity to really understand the needs of Walsall passengers and non-public transport users.
“We are particularly interested in hearing people’s views about how we can improve connections between different forms of public transport making those connections easier, quicker and more convenient.
“We want to make sure we provide a public transport system that is a genuine alternative to the car and secure the best deal for passengers by urging bus and rail operators to listen very carefully to what the public say.”
