Improving and protecting local bus services

Today the government announced an additional £80 million in funding to improve and protect local bus services, boosting connectivity and growing the economy. 

  • Whether it be through our Get Around for £2 scheme or our £1 billion Bus Service Improvement Plan we have consistently taken the long term decisions to level up local transport because we know how much people rely on it. 
  • The Conservative government has now announced an additional £80 million in bus funding for 64 local authorities – supporting local services, helping lower fares, improving bus reliability and punctuality while preventing service reductions as part of our £3.5 billion investment in lifeline bus services since 2020.
  • This will make sure people have the reliable local bus connections they need to get around, improving day to day life whilst growing the economy.
