Bus Users England is on the move
Bus Users England is moving its operations to Leeds to play its part in some of the major transport and regeneration projects currently underway in the city.
Set up in 2015 under the directorship of Dawn Badminton-Capps, Bus Users England has been actively campaigning on behalf of passengers up and down the country who are facing cuts to subsidies and the loss of services. The England team, which includes three full-time and two part-time members of staff, has also been actively involved in devolution discussions and the introduction of the Buses Bill, as well as helping to run Your Bus Matters events where passengers are able to speak directly to the people responsible for running their local bus services.
Dawn said: “With our lease coming to an end in Birmingham, it was a great opportunity to look further afield for a new location. Leeds has a great deal to offer including excellent transport links and good proximity to the other Bus Users offices, as well as the many transport bodies, passenger groups and voluntary sector organisations we work so closely with.”
