Buses in Wales: proposals will mean easier journeys

31 March 2022

Reacting to the Welsh Government's Bus White Paper, Silviya Barrett, Head of Policy at Campaign for Better Transport, said:

"The Welsh Government recognises the potential of buses to replace car journeys and tackle climate change, as well as their social importance. We welcome its vision for one network, one timetable and one ticket, which will make bus travel easy and attractive for everyone in Wales. It is crucial that the new regulatory framework enables the government, local authorities and bus operators to work well together to deliver services that work best for passengers locally. The strategy must also be underpinned by the long-term funding commitment needed to make it a reality."

ENDS
