Chance to discuss public transport

PUBLIC transport users are invited to go along to a Customer Roadshow on 4 September (10am – noon) at the Friday Morning Café at St David’s Church, Rocky Lane, Childwall, for a chance to meet representatives from bus and train operators, to have a chat and ask any questions they may have about public transport.

Councillor Ruth Hirschfield said: “These social events are very popular and provide a lot of advice and information on topics of real interest to the local community.

“On the first Friday in July we all enjoyed the hands on computer sessions very kindly provided by Liverpool Mutual Homes in their digital bus, Diane. We will be continuing our programme of First Friday events from September and welcome ideas from residents on what they would like to see included”.

The next event will give local people the chance to find out more about public transport and to talk to bus and train operators. Representatives from The 20 Effect, the programme which is introducing a 20mph speed limit on residential roads across the city, will also be present to talk about the new speed limits.

Councillor Jeremy Wolfson, a local councillor who is also a Member of the Merseytravel Committee, said: “Customer roadshows are a good opportunity for people in the local community to talk to the operators about transport issues that affect them and for the operators to give travel advice and up to date information on local issues.”
