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.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
