The Telegraph reported that Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham has come under pressure from bus operators as he looks to reform the city’s bus network. The Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT) trade body said the plans to move to a franchised system “could leave taxpayers with an estimated £135m bill and reduce efficiency” and has instead proposed a partnership model. The mayor is due to make a decision on bus franchising in March.

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
