WI welcomes commitment to national bus strategy
Last year the Government announced that it would publish a National Bus Strategy this spring. Alongside the statement, the Government committed to give £220million in funding for buses, to improve current services and restore those that have been lost. The WI has welcomed this announcement as a positive step towards recognising the value of bus services to communities across the country.
However, the work doesn’t stop there. As part of our Get on Board campaign launched last year, the WI is calling for Government and local authorities to work with bus companies to ensure bus services are sustainable and safeguarded for the future.
