Bus users across West Lothian are urged to get involved and have their say in two new public consultations that will help shape the future of bus services and smart ticketing in Scotland.

Linlithgow MSP Fiona Hyslop wants her constituents to be aware that Transport Scotland is conducting a number of events and stakeholder workshops to encourage participation in the process before the consultations close on December 5.

Ms Hyslop said: “Bus services is an issue I hear a lot about from my constituents. Hundreds of people will use the bus every single day, many relying on them for work or family reasons.

“Transport Scotland’s two new consultations offer the public and stakeholders in West Lothian an important opportunity to have their say on how best to improve Scotland’s bus services.

“In order to develop an effective, joined up, Scotland-wide smart ticketing and payment service, it is important that as many transport operators, public bodies and users as possible are consulted and so I would encourage my constituents to get involved.”
