The Chancellor has announced the Government's budget in the Autumn Statement. 

Commenting on the Autumn Statement, CPT's Chief Executive Graham Vidler said: 

"It's encouraging that the transport budget has been maintained in the Chancellor's Autumn Statement.

In the immediate term, CPT will work with devolved areas to prioritise improving local bus services as part of levelling-up funding.

Our longer-term focus is with the Transport Secretary Mark Harper to secure a fair share of investment for the bus and coach sector - the nation's most popular form of public transport – which is crucial for the UK’s wealth and health."
