Bus Industry Urges Politicians To Back Change

We have joined forces with bus operators across Scotland, and are calling for practical changes to help our industry flourish and deliver better services to customers.

The move comes following the publication of a report commissioned by CPT Scotland, the trade association which represents the bus industry, which has revealed the reasons behind the recent decline in bus usage.

Independent research by KPMG (Trends in Scottish Bus Patronage), examined Scottish patronage trends and concludes, despite bus industry efforts to boost customer numbers and develop services, operators are being hampered by a range of factors including rising car use, congestion, changing shopping habits and reduced public sector investment.
