MAG invites riders to have say in West Yorkshire

MAG is encouraging all motorcyclists to share their views in a crucial survey of opinions being held by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA).

The new plan will be a twenty year vision for developing an integrated transport network that supports the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership’s Strategic Economic Plan for sustained and healthy economic growth – especially for jobs and housing.

 From now till Friday 21 October 2016 the Authority is running a full public and stakeholder consultation on the content of the Transport Strategy and the Bus Strategy.

MAG’s Regional Lead on Transport Policy, Steve Bolton, has appealed to all motorcyclists to respond.  ‘This is our chance to have a say on the future of transport services in West Yorkshire.  Bikers can make a very big impact on the plans they come up with, but they have to hear from us for that to happen.  Please thank the councils for including motorcycles – and you can do that in the free text box you’ll find on-line.  If you could also let me know you’ve done that, it would be a great help as then I can see what we’ve contributed.  Also, share the request for input as widely as you can, and please don’t delay – do it now.’

Although the consultation closes on Friday 21 October 2016, it’s best to make your contribution immediately – it will only take a few minutes and make a huge difference to the status of motorbikes and scooters in the Authority’s plans.  You’ll find the survey at this link:
