View original Sheffield Mayor ‘mindful’ over first bus

The Yorkshire Post reported that Sheffield City Region Mayor, Dan Jarvis has said he is ‘incredibly mindful’ of the financial concerns around bus operator First. Transport chiefs working under the mayor said there could be “substantial bus service reductions” without “significant public subsidy”. The mayor has said bus services are “not as good as he’d like them to be” and has called on the Government for greater resources for devolved areas to invest in bus services. First operate over 400 buses across the region– around half of the total South Yorkshire fleet.

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
