There has been a broad community engagement process supporting the development of general access bus services.
An important part of developing the public transport network has been talking to the existing bus operators and local communities to work out if, and how, the current service can be improved.
The Department of State Growth have been gathering information via our website, phone and face to face discussions for the past 18 months from the community on public transport in their local area.
Consultations has also occurred with bus operators, key stakeholder groups, councils and community groups.
Targeted community consultation has also occurred in areas where services were either going to be removed or converted to student only services.
