Low Carbon Oxford North is asking residents of those parts of our area less well served by buses to share your experiences of how you get to Summertown and Oxford city centre, and your views on whether a local direct bus service that went from your area would help you to get there more easily. The North Oxford Bus Survey runs from 9 August 2021. This is a real chance to contribute to improving bus services in our area. We are saying don’t just grumble about the buses – make your voice heard! Go to the survey page.
The survey supports our aim to promote active travel and help people to minimise the use of cars in the north of Oxford, to reduce air pollution and carbon emissions. We will also be sharing the survey results with Oxfordshire County Council who are currently writing a Bus Service Improvement Plan, as requested by the Department for Transport. The North Oxford Bus Survey is your chance to contribute to their proposals. The more replies before the end of August, the more impact the survey will have – though you can respond up to 17 September.
We are focusing on the areas that are a relatively long way from the shops and amenities in Summertown, or used to have a bus service but no longer do. We are leafleting as many households as we can in these areas during August. If you live on one of the main bus routes, you probably won’t find your area mentioned in the survey but you can still take part.
You can also have your say by writing to your local councillor. Visit Write to Them to find out who represents your area.
