Liberal Democrat: Bus service investment will support growth and cut carbon emissions

Liberal Democrat press release:

Commenting on the announcement by Liberal Democrat Transport Minister, Norman Baker, that bus services in England are set to receive £90 million to make them greener, more efficient and easier to use, Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party Committee on Transport, Julian Huppert said:

"This major investment in our bus services is testament to the fact we are continuing to assert our Liberal Democrat values in the Coalition Government. It will help to ensure we provide a first-class public transport network that supports jobs and growth, but at the same time, green and sustainable.

"By encouraging bus operators and local authorities to work together, we can improve services and increase passenger numbers. We have also recognised that support for Community Transport is vital especially in rural areas and for elderly and disabled passengers who find accessing regular services difficult.

"We can only encourage people out of their cars by giving them a bus service that is cost-effective and reliable and makes a genuine commitment to cutting carbon emissions."
