  • Bus photo with words "We've saved the BSOG"

    The Bus Service Operators Grant is secure, after more than 1,000 of you asked the Chancellor to save this vital funding for buses.

    But not all of the news from the Spending Review is so positive.

  • 30 years since the Transport Act deregulated bus services, our Buses in Crisis report shows the massive cuts we've seen since, with 25 per cent of funding axed in the past five years alone.

    We're calling on the Government to act now to reverse the fall of vital bus transport.
