Transport Focus comment on National Bus Strategy

15 March 2021

Today the Government launched its bus strategy, including details of £3bn investment plans.

Anthony Smith, chief executive of independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:

“For bus passengers, today’s announcement of more frequent buses and simpler fares will be welcome news. For many, buses are a lifeline to employment, education, medical appointments and leisure, and are essential to the economy. We know that the key priorities for those considering using the bus are more services running more reliably, providing better value.

“Since the pandemic, safety and cleanliness have become ever more important. We will work with bus operators and other partners to make sure passengers’ needs are at the heart of new arrangements.”
