Public Transport Forum


The purpose of the group is to enable representatives to engage together in a constructive forum to consider and recommend actions on public transport issues, in order to achieve the aims and objectives of the Borough Council and the Local Strategic Partnership as set out in the Sustainable Community Plan.

The Forum has no decision-making powers.

Membership of the Forum

Representatives of the Access Group, Kent County Council, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council, bus, train and taxi operators, Parish and Town Councils and other user or local community groups.

The Borough Council nominates two Borough Councillors as representatives to attend the meetings.

However any other Council Member is welcome to attend and speak on specific issues providing they have given prior notice to the Chairman.

Other representatives are welcome to attend the Forum provided that they are acting on behalf of a relevant group, organisation or body.

The group will give careful consideration to all such requests.

Forthcoming Meetings

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the July Public Transport Forum was cancelled as a face to face meeting.

The next Public Transport Forum is scheduled for November 2020.

The situation will be reviewed closer to the time as to whether it will be possible to hold the Forum in its usual format.
