National Bus Strategy – Public Engagement Survey

The National Bus Strategy sets out the Government’s vision for bus transport. Advocating simple, cheap flat fares with a contactless payment, with daily and weekly price capping across operators, including rail. A network, with easy-to-understand services, consistent high standards and comprehensive information, 4,000 new green buses, and many others, running faster and more reliably in special lanes

In March 2021, Baroness Vere wrote to all English Local Transport Authorities (LTA) to offer £100,000 to assist them in progressing an Enhanced Partnership (EP) for their area and by the end of October 2021, Government expect all LTAs to publish a Local Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP), detailing how they propose to improve services
