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 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
