West Leeds: Changes to bus services that could transform journeys for thousands

West Leeds bus users are being encouraged to comment on proposals to improve the information passengers use to plan journeys and use the bus system around the city.

New proposals included colour-coded maps, bus shelters, signs and other on-street infrastructure that link to bus lines across Leeds.

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority hope that these improvements will make it easier to plan and take bus journeys by creating a user-friendly and accessible navigation system. 

The latest proposals  are available here, where people can also express their views. The survey will close at midnight on Friday 31 July 2020. 

Cllr Kim Groves, Chair of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority Transport Committee, said: 

“We hope this new way of helping passengers navigate the bus network will attract people back to public transport as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and drive up bus usage over the longer term.  

“These proposals will create a user-friendly and accessible system that has been developed so that it can be rolled out firstly in Leeds and then across West Yorkshire.” 

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, it is not possible to hold any public drop-in sessions for this engagement. But if anyone would like to discuss proposals further before submitting feedback, the project team can be contacted at yourvoice@westyorks-ca.gov.uk  or on 0113 245 7676. This contact should also be used if the information is required in an alternative format, such as braille.

This work is part of the Connecting Leeds transforming travel programme, which is investing £270 million in the transport network in the city.
