Transport Select Committee report into the health of the bus market

Commenting on the Transport Select Committee report into the health of the bus market, David Sidebottom, director at Transport Focus, said: 

“This report provides a welcome focus on the role bus plays in local communities and ambition to help local authorities and bus operators improve services for passengers. 

 “A national bus strategy is welcome as nearly half of passengers surveyed in Transport Focus’s Bus Passenger Survey say that 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. 

 “It’s imperative that bus services are built around the needs of passengers and that their views and aspirations are at the heart of decision-making.”
