Bus 2020 – The Case for the Bus
produced by Green Journeys (February 2015)
In this paper, Greener Journeys sets out solutions to promote investment in bus infrastructure, maintain free bus passes for older people, and encourage more people to commute by bus. It argues that their proposals all provide taxpayers with high value for money, and clear benefits for the wider economy. Every pound invested in buses is a sound investment in our communities, our environment and our future prosperity.
Greener Journeys is a coalition of Britain’s leading bus companies and other supporters including Transport for London, RAC Foundation, Passenger Focus, Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT), Passenger Transport Executive Group (PTEG), and Campaign for Better Transport. Its primary funders are bus companies Arriva, FirstGroup, Go-Ahead and Stagecoach.
