Merseytravel wants your views on public transport
MERSEYTRAVEL is to hold a series of meetings with Wirral commuters to get their views and suggestions on improving public transport.
The Wirral Customer Forums, headed by boardmember and Seacombe Labour councillor John Salter, are designed to replace the recently disbanded advice panels and women's forums.
Similar Forums will be held four times a year in each of the five districts of Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral.
Councillor Mary Rasmussen, Chair of Merseytravel's corporate social responsibility committee, said: "Our previous consultation panels served their purpose but are now out-dated.
"We need to be much broader in our approach to canvassing views, and this will enable us to truly put the customers at the forefront of moving Merseyside forward.
"The Customer Forums will be more inclusive – everybody is invited along to have their say – and the views of our customers will help us shape the future of transport on Merseyside."
The Wirral Forums will be held in the Lauries Centre, Claughton Road, Birkenhead at 2pm next Wednesday, July 18.
Meetings will also be held on Wednesday October 17, Wednesday January 16 and Wednesday, April 17.
