Passengers welcome emergency support for bus industry

Commenting on the emergency support for the bus industry through coronavirus, Transport Focus and London TravelWatch Chief Executive Anthony Smith said: 

“Around half of bus passengers tell us that the bus is the only real means of transport available to them, so it is right that the Government has recognised the exceptional circumstances posed by coronavirus.

“Bus operators and transport authorities must keep services running for key workers and those who must travel for medical care and essential shopping. It is vital that services are protected so they can get back up and running as soon as this crisis is over.”
