Let's Talk... about Transporting People


The council spends £22million every year on various types of transport, to help different people travel around Fife for different reasons.

These are vital services and we want you to help us explore whether we could do anything differently to meet people’s needs and get the best possible value from limited budgets.

This is more than consultation. We’re trying a new way to involve people in designing the future of council services - in this case subsidised passenger transport services.

Through a series of conversations between now and September 2020 we want to discuss: what’s already working well; what opportunities and constraints are out there; what options are feasible for the future and which options people prefer.
