The Department for Transport announced its Great British Rail sale this month with approximately 628,000 tickets sold in the first week. Just how effective these tickets are in reducing costs is still up for debate with critics claiming they are only available for unpopular journeys or that they only cover a very small number of overall trips. What is certain is the government recognises the price of rail has skyrocketed in the past few decades, and something needs to be done to remedy this.

It’s clear one year on from the National Bus Strategy, both national government and sub-regional transport bodies understand the important role buses will play in improving and decarbonising our transport networks.
