Passengers welcome £5bn boost for bus services

Commenting on the Prime Minister’s announcement of £5 billion for buses Anthony Smith, chief executive of the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:

“Nearly half of passengers in our Bus Passenger survey say the bus is the only real means of transport available to them, so it’s vital that their service is on time, reliable and offers good value for money.

“Passengers will welcome this significant investment to provide more affordable services that are on-time going to more places, more often.
