The Confederation of Passenger Transport, the trade body for the bus and coach industry, has commissioned WPI Economics to analyse the role that switching car journeys to bus and coach journeys (“modal shift”) may have in achieving the country’s net zero emissions goal. This report summarises the result of the first stage of the project, demonstrating why modal shift is necessary to ensure a just transition to net zero and desirable for its multidimensional benefits, while the next report will assess different policy interventions to demonstrate that modal shift is possible.Click here to read more

We are delighted to launch the Coach Strategy, the industry’s first official strategy outlining vital role of coach in UK society and how, with Government support, the industry can thrive and play its full part in the economic and green recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Moving Forward Together strategy sets out how we can get 1 billion more journeys by bus by 2030.
The strategy includes new commitments from the industry, including a pledge to work with government to make every new bus an ultra-low or zero emission bus from 2025.
Bus and coach drivers are key workers and make a real difference to the UK. They help people to get out and about – to get to work or education, to go shopping, access other essential services or to enjoy some leisure time and meet other people.
