Government must get a grip and improve vital bus services – Matt Rodda

Matt Rodda MP, Labour’s Shadow Buses Minister, commenting on an NAO report detailing the Government’s failure to improve local buses, said:

“The Tories said deregulation would improve our buses but they are running services into the ground.

“This independent report shows passengers now face a toxic mix of rising fares, cuts to services and reduced access. The Government must urgently get a grip and improve bus services which are vital to communities up and down the country.”
