Organisations needed to help lobby for better services
TSL Kirklees has been approached by a group of local people who are concerned about the lack of consistency in bus services in Kirklees and who would like to start a new campaign along the lines of the Better Buses campaign in Manchester. They’d like to hear from local organisations who’d be interested in getting involved to identify and address issues, drive the campaign forward, and represent different sectors of the community.
The ambition for the group is to have a say in local consultations, work with local councillors who are involved in transport, both locally and across the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, and lobby for consistency in fares and services across Kirklees, including:
- price capping
- cleaner buses
- joined up and efficient public transport
- subsidised essential loss-making routes
