Bus services across Strathclyde are in crisis.

Bus services across Strathclyde are in crisis.

Bus services across Strathclyde are in crisis.

Private bus companies receive millions in public subsidies every year, yet they continue to cut our vital services and hike up fares.

This has left many people across our region locked out of jobs and opportunities, unable to visit friends or family, or forced to buy cars.

We’ve seen a vicious circle of decline ever since our buses were deregulated in 1986.

Now finally we have the chance to turn this around.

New powers in the Transport Act 2019 mean our transport authority – SPT – can take our buses back into public control.

Re-regulating the private bus companies (through ‘franchising’) will mean SPT can plan bus routes to serve our communities’ needs and to connect seamlessly with trains, ferries and Glasgow’s Subway.

They can cut fares and deliver one simple, affordable ticket across all transport modes – like Greater Manchester is now doing.
