Urban Transport Authorities respond to DfT funding announcement

Press release

Responding to today's DfT's funding announcement Chair of the Urban Transport Group, Laura Shoaf, said:

"Although we have yet to see the full details, today’s confirmation of substantial investment in Bus Service Improvement Plans, and in City Region Sustainable Transport Settlements, is welcome and will result in significant improvements in public transport and active travel provision for some of the people and places we serve. We now need to see this package of largely capital spending complemented by a long term plan for revenue support for bus networks which can meet the national bus strategy’s aspirations for better services everywhere."
