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 comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
