The bus industry is doing all it can to support the health and wellbeing of its customers, colleagues and the general public at this time of crisis. We are playing our part in communicating the Government's public health advice to avoid unessential travel.
The Scottish Government will provide bus operators with additional financial assistance to maintain essential services. This is intended to offset the impact that reduced demand is having on the viability of local services for key workers and to protect the industry for the future.
Following the announcement in the Budget 2020 that West Yorkshire Combined Authority will be getting an elected mayor, CPT’s Northern & Yorkshire regional manager Andrew McGuinness calls for the positive relationships between local leaders and the bus industry to continue.
Today the Department for Transport launch their campaign ‘it’s everyone’s journey’, championing equal access on public transport. In our latest blog post, CPT’s Chief Executive Graham Vidler writes about how we can all be more mindful when making journeys on the bus.
CPT has today (20 February) launched a new Accounting and Business Services scheme for members. Delivered by CPT’s new Commercial Partner, RSM UK, the scheme offers members a full range of accountancy and business services tailored for the bus and coach industry through a network of 35 offices across the UK.
