Transport Focus, the independent watchdog, has today [March 3] published a report exploring passengers’ trust in the bus industry.
Commenting on the report, Bus Passengers have their say: Trust, what to improve and using buses more, Claire Haigh, Chief Executive of Greener Journeys, said:
“Buses deliver huge social, environmental and economic benefits. Traffic congestion costs the UK at least £11 billion per year, and buses can, and must, be part of the solution. Furthermore, we know that every pound spent on local bus infrastructure can generate up to £7 of benefits for local business, communities and the environment.
“This is why Greener Journeys will be encouraging bus operators, local transport authorities and central Government to take note of these important findings to help deliver modal shift from car to bus.”
