MSP Gil Paterson has asked his constituents to make their views heard about Scotland’s bus service – especially the introduction of smart ticketing.
Two new consultations are now running consultations that will help shape the future of bus services and smart ticketing in Scotland.
Smart ticketing is the name given to the system where an entitlement to travel or ticket is stored electronically on a microchip rather than being printed on a paper ticket.
Transport Scotland will conduct a number of events and stakeholder workshops to encourage participation in these consultations before they close on December 5.
Mr Paterson said: “Many people in Clydebank and Milngavie rely on the bus service on a day-to-day basis – so I am delighted that these two consultations are taking place. They offer a chance for people in Clydebank to help shape the future of busing in Scotland.
“The upgrade to smart ticketing would be a technological change that I am sure many will want to air their views about. It will have its positives and negatives, and I am sure the bus users of Clydebank and Milngavie will have thoughts to put on record on it. I urge them not to miss out on this opportunity.”
