RESIDENTS are being asked for their views on buses across South Yorkshire which will be used in a review to be announced by MP Dan Jarvis later this year.

An expert panel of commissioners have been appointed to conduct a review into the current bus network and make recommendations as to how it could be improved.

Mayor Jarvis said: “I know buses are a lifeline for communities across South Yorkshire.

“Bus services are one of the main topics of conversation that people raise with me as Mayor.

“But at the same time over the last decade, there has been an 18 per cent decrease in the number of people using buses in our region.

“I would encourage people from across South Yorkshire’s communities, whether they currently use the bus or not, to have their say in our public consultation.”

The aim of the survey is to find out what people think of the current bus network and what improvements could be made and can be accessed online via
