Our first blog of 2022 is written by Backhouse Jones, headline sponsor of the UK Bus & Coach Conference 2022 taking place on 25 and 26 January.

If you want to find out how to tackle current issues head on, share your views and get ideas in a sector that is ever-changing, then the UK Bus and Coach Conference on 25 and 26 January is for you!

The 2022 conference will again take place online, so you can enjoy the experience from the comfort of your own desk. This is a chance for operators to be challenged to think about how they can do things differently to ensure they can continue to play their part to deliver better services for passengers and the UK’s ambitious climate change targets.

With a heritage stretching back to 1819, the award-winning Backhouse Jones is a leading firm of solicitors that has built an unrivalled reputation representing the commercial road and passenger transport industries.   

The two-day conference is packed full of topics at the top of our industry’s agenda. Just a few examples to whet your appetite include sessions looking at growing domestic tourism, changing travel behaviours, and recruiting and retaining staff.

This is an opportunity for delegates to hear from high-profile, influential speakers including Transport Minister Baroness Vere, Transport Select Committee Chair Huw Merriman and Visit Scotland’s Rob Dickson. More information about the speakers can be found here in the full conference programme.

If that isn’t enough, Backhouse Jones Directors, Jonathon Backhouse and James Backhouse, will also be speaking about the potholes of moving from paper to digital record-keeping and the future of bus regulation.
