Public asked to help plan new A591 shuttle-bus

Shuttle bus

With the public shuttle-bus set to be the only transport link between Keswick and Grasmere until the road is fully reopened in May, the council is asking for public feedback to help design how the service will operate.

An online survey has been launched aimed at people who plan on using the service. The survey covers timing, frequency, transport connections, pick up points and other issues, as well as asking respondents to suggest a name for the new service.

Because of the short time available to get the service in place people have until Monday 18 January to respond.

The public shuttle-bus will be operational for when the temporary road being built on the east side of Dunmail Raise is complete at the start of February.

Keith Little, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, said:

“All of us would prefer the road to be open sooner, but we now have to work with the reality that that won’t happen for some time. That’s why the design of the new bus service is so important. It’s potentially going to be used by a lot of different people with different needs so we want people to give us their feedback to help us get it right for as many of them as possible.”
