Jessica Elgot has reported that Labour announced they would give under-25-year olds free bus travel if they were in Government.

Labour said the policy would save 13m young people £1,000 a year and would cost the Government £1.4bn a year.

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.

Warren Ralls, Director, LEP Network
