Bus market inquiry launched
The Transport Committee has launched an inquiry into the decline of the bus market in England outside London.
Bus service in decline
Bus service use is in decline in England, according to annual statistics from the Department for Transport (DfT). While bus use per person has increased by 52% in London over the last 25 years, it has fallen by 40% in other metropolitan areas.
During the inquiry, MPs will consider:
- bus service reliability
- how services are run in metro-mayor, metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas
- how they are financed
- examples of innovation and best practice
