Best Value Review - Increasing Accessibility and Sustainability

Following completion of its Best Value Review of public transport services, Leicestershire County Council has drawn up a package of measures to be implemented by summer 2004. Developed according to Best Value principles, the measures set out to improve accessibility and sustainability in transport through the most efficient usage of local authority resources.

TTR will provide project management support and advice to the implementation team over the next 2 years. The key areas for improvement include:

·      Hourly daytime service coverage for 95% of people in the county by the end of 2003

·      Complete provision of evening and Sunday hourly services, within available funding, by the end of 2003

·      The introduction of new rural services to meet the expressed priorities, covering all areas away from the hourly services network, by summer 2004

·      The introduction of new schools services, in partnership with schools undertaking school travel plans, within available funding, by summer 2004
