Fife Council officers are set to ask people what they want from transport services
They are conducting chat at bus stations across the region, starting next week – and they want people to “think big!”
Councillor Altany Craik, convener of the economy, tourism, strategic planning and transportation committee said: “We’re not just looking to hear what works well now or how existing services could be improved, although that will be useful.
“Is there a completely different way of meeting people’s needs? Should we do less of one thing but a lot more of another?
“At this stage, any idea is welcome even if it seems like a pipedream. In the new year we’ll explore how people’s ideal-world solutions sit alongsiDe current policy, legislation, contracts and other practicalities, so that we can refine ideas ahead of a public vote on service options.
