Evening all,

Just come across an article which states that there is a consultation ongoing at the moment relating to supported bus services: it is being done ". It is supposed to close on Sunday 28th November but one campaigner (D.R) has asked for an extension to be considered due to the lack of advertising of this consultation on buses etc.

Completed the survey. Unfortunately it only allows your to enter one set of journey details. Presumably if you use more than one supported service you have to complete a survey for each service

I like to travel.  It lets me feel I'm getting somewhere.

Seems like yet another example of something that's been drawn up and then not been checked by people not involved in the drafting. You're invited to give information about all routes you use and are then given only one field in which to enter the stops / locations you are travelling between. While it would be almost impossible to allow for all possible answers, a bit of guidance as to what you do if you use (say) four different supported services at different times between a variety of locations would be helpful - especially given the fact that the enquiry covers both P&R (Park and Ride) and "normal" services.
