Brexit uncertainty over cross-border bus services

View original

According to the BBC, Chief Executive of Translink, Chris Conway gave evidence to a House of Lords Committee yesterday.  He said it was still unclear if the company will be able to run cross-border bus services in the event that the UK does not reach a deal with the EU.  Translink currently runs 70 cross-border services.  The issue concerns the Community Licence, the permit which allowed drivers to drive freely between EU member states.  However, in the event of no-deal, it is not yet known if the EU will recognise UK-issued Community Licenses.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
