Bus Service Improvement Plan and Enhanced Partnership

We have commenced the process of responding to the Government’s national bus strategy, Bus Back Better. It places responsibilities on Local Transport Authorities to publish a Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP), and form Enhanced Partnerships with local bus operators by April 2022. The focus of the strategy is on encouraging and enabling more people to travel by bus through investment in improving services, associated infrastructure and integration with other modes of sustainable travel. To achieve this, £3 billion of funding is being made available across England (outside London) for this purpose.
