Budget 2017: a missed opportunity

Budget 2017: a missed opportunity

Bus Users has welcomed measures in this year’s Budget to address growing congestion in urban areas but warned more needs to be done to encourage a modal shift from private to public transport.

Norman Baker, Chair of Bus Users said: “The most effective way to tackle congestion is to get people out of their cars and on to buses. This can only be done by investing in services, adopting priority measures for buses in town and city centres, and subsidising bus travel, particularly for young people.

“Given the vital contribution buses make to reducing congestion and pollution, addressing social isolation, boosting local economies and improving access to health, education and employment, this Budget has been a missed opportunity."
