Transport Focus

1 min read

Commenting on the £700 million coronavirus support for buses and trams, David Sidebottom, director at the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:

“We know from our research that many bus and tram passengers have limited travel options and they are often the only real means of transport available to them, so they will welcome this funding.

“Bus and tram operators must survive to keep services running in these challenging times and help people get back to school, further education and return to work in the coming months.”
