View original Urban Transport Group publishes bus patronage report

The Urban Transport Group has published research by Transport for Quality of Life on key factors that determine trends in bus usage in local areas. The research found that underlying socio-economic and demographic factors were important determinants for bus usage as well as a pre-existing culture of bus use and strong pro-bus policies. Director of the Urban Transport Group, Jonathan Bray stated that the research shows that increased and reformed funding for bus services is needed to “rebuild a culture of bus use for the low or zero-carbon city regions of the twenty-first century.”

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.
