Leader of the Scottish Labour Party, Richard Leonard wrote an article for Scottish newspaper, The Scotsman in which he is critical of the Scottish National Party’s supporting privatised bus services, arguing that it has prioritised shareholders and left some areas stranded. Noting that an expansion of bus services does not require a large amount of new infrastructure, Richard Leonard wrote that Labour would extend free bus passes to under-25s, and “shift the balance from shareholder profit to public investment and so build a free bus network to serve the whole of Scotland”.

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
