People have the chance to have their say on the future of public transport in the West Midlands.

Centro is inviting businesses and the public to give their views on the Local Transport Plan (LTP) at a number of exhibitions around the Midlands in the New Year.

The LTP has been unveiled by transport authority Centro working in partnership with the seven West Midlands district councils.

It is a blueprint to improve the region’s transport system over the next 15 years and has been launched to help underpin economic regeneration and the creation of vital new jobs.

Centro chairman Councillor Angus Adams said: “The LTP details our transport priorities for the next 15 years and we want to hear what the public and business communities think.

“It sets out how transport plays its part in improving the quality of life of the region, supporting and enabling economic growth and generating new jobs

“I would urge anyone with an interest in the future of public transport in this region to let us know what they think.”

The exhibitions are:

Monday 10th January – Network West Midlands Exhibition Bus, By Lady Godiva, Broadgate, Coventry city centre (2pm-5pm)
