Centre for Cities has published a report calling for metro mayors in England to have more powers to improve bus services and increase the amount of passengers. The group say that the next government should simply the bus franchising process and allow all metro mayors to franchise bus services, bringing these services under local control. Centre for Cities argue that there are “economic, social and environmental benefits of moving towards a London-style bus franchising system” for local authorities across the country.”

With LEPs now responsible for significant amounts of local transport funding decisions, the Transport Knowledge Hub is a timely new tool for local decision makers. At the LEP Network, we know the huge value of giving LEPs a forum to share best practice and engage with other stakeholders, so we are delighted to be involved with a transport-specific project which supports spending decisions that make a genuine difference.
