In an announcement made earlier this week, that will make Irish bus and coach operators envious, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined his 10-point plan to revitalise bus infrastructure across the UK, backed up by £3bn of Government investment. 

Bus travel throughout England is set for a full overhaul with new multi-billion pound Government investment. Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined his 10-point plan to revitalise bus infrastructure across the country.

The plan includes the introduction of simpler bus fares with daily price caps, increased evening and weekend services, contactless payments on all buses and integrated services across multiple transport modes.

In addition, 4,000 new electric or hydrogen powered buses will be rolled out across England alongside ending the sale of diesel vehicles.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson commented on the development: “Buses are lifelines and liberators, connecting people to jobs they couldn’t otherwise take, driving pensioners and young people to see their friends, sustaining town centres and protecting the environment. As we build back from the pandemic, better buses will be one of our first acts of levelling-up. Just as they did in London, our reforms will make buses the transport of choice, reducing the number of car journeys and improving quality of life for millions.”
