Jessica Elgot has reported that Labour announced they would give under-25-year olds free bus travel if they were in Government. Local authorities who moved to bring buses into public ownership would be given funds from road tax to provide the free travel. Labour said the policy would save 13m young people £1,000 a year and would cost the Government £1.4bn a year.

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
