Transport Select Committee Bus Inquiry

In our final part of the Transport Select Committee’s inquiry to the bus market, I asked for better regulation to ensure that bus companies must provide services in the public good. I also asked for more powers to regulate. The public sector subsidises £2 billion of the £5 billion raised by bus companies. Train Operators are largely funded purely by fares. Surely the bus market should be as regulated as rail given the public is the key funder?
