Protect our Bus Services!

Posted by on 6 July 2016

Do you use bus services in the Forest of Dean area?

Gloucestershire County Council is currently running a survey on bus routes in the Forest of Dean. The results of the survey will help to inform a scrutiny exercise which will consider figures, profit and efficiency.

In particular, evening and Sunday services will be looked at.
Local public transport campaigners in the Forest are concerned that, in a rural area where buses are a lifeline to many, more cuts to bus services are on the horizon. They are urging anyone who cares about public transport in the Forest to make their views known.

The survey is open until 22nd July. It can be accessed online at

You can also get paper copies from:

Dial-a-ride at Lydney bus station

Reception desk at Coleford should have them but check first 01594 810000

Via Sue Dubois on 01594 517297

Please note that the survey options are carefully worded, please read carefully before sending.
