Views sought on bus services
Public transport users are being asked for their views on bus services.
The transport partnership ZetTrans and Shetland Islands Council have launched the week-long online survey today.
SIC director of development services, Neil Grant, said: “The survey is designed to collect details about passenger journeys to ensure that any decisions made in relation to the level of services provided are well informed and I would encourage as many people as possible to complete it.”
The survey comes just over a month after the council abandoned plans to award 288 new bus contracts for school and public services. It had been hoped the move would save the council money but the change of heart came when it was realised the tenders submitted were more than the council could afford.
Instead existing contracts were extended until the end of March.
