View original CPT call on Government to deliver national bus strategy

The Confederation of Passenger Transport has called on the Government to launch a national bus strategy to increase bus usage. The group, which represents the UK’s five largest bus firms, Arriva, FirstGroup, Go Ahead, National Express and Stagecoach, said there should be concessions for jobseekers and apprentices as well as smart ticketing on bus services. The group also pledged to buy only ultra-low or zero-emission vehicles from 2025 to reduce the environmental impact of buses.

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.
