As part of Stagecoach South West`s commitment to our customer and stakeholder engagement including Devon County Council and other local authorities, we have produced a consultative document with the main aim of offering stakeholders and members of the public alike, an opportunity to actively participate in the bus route planning process for Stagecoach routes in the South West region.
Bob Dennison, Managing Director of Stagecoach South West says ‘This is a new approach for us; to engage both customer and other stakeholders in the planning of our network in advance of making changes. We are keen for the public and our key partners to provide information to assist us in planning the routes that facilitate their day to day lives’
This document sets out many proposed, substantive network changes for the Stagecoach South West operation. The key aims of the Plan are:
- To demonstrate Stagecoach South West`s commitment to listening and responding to the needs of our customers
- Reduce the number of major changes each year to between two and three, unless other factors prevent us from doing so e.g. our contractual obligations
- To demonstrate Stagecoach South West is a key player in the ongoing development of a sustainable transport strategy for the region
