    Bus services were cut by 16 per cent in the first year of the pandemic alone.

    Our new report looks at what needs to happen to give every community the bus service it deserves.

  • The way forward is public transport

    This is a critical moment for our transport system. Will we slip into a future of ever-rising car use? Or can we build a brighter transport future?

    Our The Way Forward campaign calls on the Government to fly the flag for public transport.

  • With RPI at a whopping 11.8%, a double-digit fare rise could be on the cards for next year. 

    We think this would be bad news for passengers, bad news for the railway, bad news for the economy, and bad news for the planet.

    We need a fares freeze for 2023 to help rail passengers with the cost-of-living crisis.
