19 April 2021

The National Bus Strategy, published on 15 March, sets out the Government’s ambitious vision for bus networks across the country, making services more frequent, more reliable, easier to understand and use, better co-ordinated and cheaper.

By the end of October 2021, Local Transport Authorities (LTAs) are expected to publish Bus Service Improvement Plans, setting out how they will achieve the Strategy’s ambitious vision for travel by bus in their area. The Department will shortly publish detailed guidance to assist LTAs on preparing their plans.
