New online planner aims to make Lichfield and Burntwood bus travel easier

A new online planner is being launched to get more people using buses in Lichfield and Burntwood.

The search allows residents to find their nearest stops and services.

It has been rolled out by Staffordshire County Council as part of the national Catch the Bus Week campaign.

County Councillor Simon Tagg said: “We are delighted to be able to launch our new bus travel planner while supporting the nationwide initiative.

“Campaigns like this are great for highlighting the many advantages of bus travel and give people an ideal opportunity to try it out for themselves.

“As a council we are keen to get more people using public transport and the more reliable and attractive we can make it, the more likely we are to get people to use it.”
