Passenger feedback to improve Walsall public transport

Centro is set to offer passengers in Walsall the opportunity to give their views on the area’s public transport network.

The ‘Your Public Transport Matters’ event will allow local people to speak directly with representatives from the region’s integrated bus, rail and tram system. It is taking place on September 13 in St Pauls, Walsall.

The passenger feedback will be used to make improvements to the network.

Kerry Meredith, principal officer of customer relations at Centro, said: “The event provides us with a perfect opportunity to really understand the needs of Walsall passengers and non-public transport users.

“We are particularly interested in hearing people’s views about how we can improve connections between different forms of public transport making those connections easier, quicker and more convenient.

“We want to make sure we provide a public transport system that is a genuine alternative to the car and secure the best deal for passengers by urging bus and rail operators to listen very carefully to what the public say.”
