Confederation of Passenger Transport's strategy: Campaign for Better Transport responds

9 September 2019

Responding to the Confederation of Passenger Transport's strategy published today, 9 September, Darren Shirley, Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:

"We welcome the industry's commitment to transforming the role of buses. Operators and Government now need to work together to deliver for passengers, communities and the economy and to cut carbon emissions."

In a report published last week, The future of the bus, Campaign for Better Transport called for a National Bus Strategy with a focus on:

  • Increasing the use of bus services across the country
  • Better integration of buses with other transport
  • A clear route to zero emission buses
  • Growth in use of technology to improve services.

ENDS
