The National Bus Strategy and subsequent guidance set out clear expectations on what Bus Service Improvement Plans should include. At the last Budget and Spending Review in October 2021 we announced £1.2 billion of new dedicated funding for bus transformation deals. We will announce details of how that funding will be allocated in due course.

We have also announced £525 million to deliver zero emission buses over this Parliament, of which £355 million was new funding announced as part of the Spending Review in October 2021.
