West Lancashire MP Ashley Dalton is bringing local residents together to hear how she can make public transport work for them. 

At the end of the month, Ms Dalton is holding a ‘Community Conversation’ in Skelmersdale. This event follows a Transport Survey that the West Lancashire MP launched last year collecting the experiences of local commuters and public transport users. 

Ms Dalton wants to break down the barriers people face when travelling. 

Speaking on the Community Conversation event, Ms Dalton said, 

“Accessing public transport is one of the biggest issues for residents in West Lancashire.” 

“Whether it’s because of a lack of rural services, accessibility issues, or unreliable buses and trains, the barriers to travelling on public transport are all too often too high.” 

“I received an excellent response to my Transport Survey. Now it’s time to bring the whole community into the conversation. Local people are brimming with ideas and we all want to work together to create better public transport services for the future.” 

Ms Dalton is holding the Community Conversation on public transport on Wednesday 28th February at the Skelmersdale Ecumenical Centre at 6.30pm. 70 tickets are available. You can register for tickets here.
