Over the life of the next Parliament, Britain has a valuable opportunity to harness the potential of the bus.

In Bus 2020 Greener Journeys has set out concrete, practical proposals to generate economic growth, create jobs and protect the environment. The next Government should:

  • Promote greener growth, by giving more support to bus priority measures
  • Help millions of people get to work by introducing a bus bonus
  • Make bus services more accessible to young people learning new skills by, as a first step, developing a concessionary bus travel scheme for apprentices
