Strengthening Local Delivery – Modernising the traffic commissioner system

Closing date: 15 October 2007

This consultation, Strengthening Local Delivery - Modernising the traffic commissioner system, explores the functions and responsibilities of the traffic commissioners and proposes the creation of a Board of Traffic Commissioners which would be responsible for ensuring that both the goods vehicle and bus sectors get the attention and resource they deserve.
 
In particular, the Board would champion bus passengers' interests and complaints about the punctuality and reliability of local bus services.

The proposals seek to ensure that the traffic commissioner system is well placed to deliver the proposed new bus functions, alongside its existing responsibilities. The proposed Board will also oversee the overall performance of the traffic commissioner system with an enhanced, centralised administrative support network to facilitate bus punctuality monitoring, ensuring that resources are focused on the greatest problem areas.

The consultation paper seeks views on the proposals.  Responses are requested by 15th October 2007.
