Campaign for Better Transport is urging people to take part in the public consultation on the proposed Greater Lincolnshire Mayoral Combined Authority. The consultation ends on 8 August 2016. Each of the ten local authorities across Lincolnshire will have to formally agree a devolution deal following a consultation with members of the public. According to the Campaign, a new Mayor in the county may have powers to raise new funds to support an attractive, affordable public transport system that gives people an alternative to driving and would have new powers to plan buses.
Public Transport Campaigner, Campaign for Better Transport, Lianna Etkind, said, ‘A new Mayoral Combined Authority could bring considerable benefits to residents across Lincolnshire enabling a more integrated transport network with a joined-up approach to fares and ticketing.’
