People living in the island of Jersey are being asked to choose which design they prefer to decorate the buses of the company that will start running the island-wide public transport service next year.
CT Plus takes over from Connex, which now operates the service, on 2 January 2013. It has put two possible designs on its new website and has asked its potential passengers to vote for the design they prefer.
One features sails and waves and lists the names of the parishes in the island’s French dialect, Jèrriais. The other is a more traditional combination of blues and greens.
CT Plus, which is part of the HTC public transport group based in the UK, is also asking for suggestions for the new service on its website. So far requests include an Andriod App for the bus timetable, the addition of bike racks and a more regular and frequent service both summer and winter.
The company has said that it wants to expand its services at peak hours and also at weekends. One of its key ideas is to introduce smartcards along the lines of the London Oyster cards.
