The transport department is looking at ways to improve the bus service
Jersey's bus service must be improved if car usage is to be reduced, the director of transport has said.
The States wants to see car usage fall by 15% over the next few years.
If that is to happen more commuter buses and more services on Sundays and in the evenings in winter must be offered, Caroline Anderson said.
The transport department is looking at using double-decker buses on popular routes, and introducing a bus priority system on the roads, she added.
Recently some buses have been full and passengers left waiting at bus stops, Ms Anderson said.
Last week Transport and Technical Services published its Sustainable Transport Plan, which aims to encourage people to use their car less.
Caroline Anderson said: "We're not going to be able to persuade people out of their cars to go visit a restaurant or friends or whatever unless we provide those places [on buses]."
The department was working with the bus company to provide a better service, she said.
They were looking at introducing a bus priority system, which would make it easier for buses to travel through traffic.
"We'll look at any solutions that help public transport over and above private cars," Ms Anderson added.
