About Us

The Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT) is recognised by Government as the voice of the bus and coach industry, and the focus for consultation on national and international legislation, local regulations, operational practices and engineering standards.

Our members range from the largest multi-national transport operators to the smallest family businesses - but they each recognise the importance of acting together for the benefit of all. Whether it's getting your voice heard by policy makers, gaining access to the latest industry resources or having someone defend you when you're under fire, we're there to support our members.
