View original #loveyourbus Day

The Department for Transport is joining bus companies in celebrating the important role that buses play in communities as part of #loveyourbus day. The day showcases operators’ best practice to encourage more people to travel by bus. Areas which have seen passenger numbers rise between 2009 and 2018 are Bristol (50%), South Gloucestershire (36%), Reading (31%), Central Bedfordshire (27%), Poole (38%) and Brighton (21%). Buses Minister, Nusrat Ghani has written to local authorities and bus companies to remind them of the powers they have to take greater control of their area’s bus services, such as franchising or enhanced partnerships. She stated “buses are the most popular form of public transport and play a vital role in communities. Today is about celebrating the many success stories of rising passenger numbers to inspire further growth in the future – right 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.

Warren Ralls, Director, LEP Network
