Today we’ve seen a major announcement from the Labour Party which is a big win for communities across Plymouth who have lost their bus services, like in Eggbuckland, Holly Park, Glenholt and more.
Labour have today announced that a Labour Government will invest £1.3bn per year on a ‘Bus Transformation Fund’. This is to reverse £645m per year of real terms cuts to bus funding and to invest the same amount again. We’ve lost 3000 bus routes across the country since the Tories came to power in 2010. Loads of people contact me about wanting better bus services so this is fantastic news…
If you, like me, are a regular user of buses and rely on them to get around, you’ll know just how important it is to get buses right.
