Bus journey planner welcomed, but national investment strategy still needed

26 March 2019

Responding to the announcement today by Buses Minister Nusrat Ghani of £4 million in Government funding for a platform to provide location information about bus services, Darren Shirley from Campaign for Better Transport said:

"We welcome this move as a way to improve local buses and create a more modern bus network. Being able to plan your journey in advance using an app or online service will make travelling by bus easier, more convenient and encourage more people to choose the bus. But as bus services continue to dwindle up and down the country, the Government must look to introduce a national bus investment strategy to ensure each and every community has the chance to use this new platform in the future."
