Following the announcement of additional funding for buses in Wales, the Confederation of Passenger Transport’s CEO Graham Vidler said:

“We welcome the Welsh Government’s ongoing commitment to invest in supporting bus services. The funding recognises the value of buses to local communities and the economy.

“However, it is not yet known whether the settlement can save all services in every part of Wales beyond July. We urgently call on the Welsh Government to clarify their exact funding position to allow the sector to swiftly work with local authority partners to protect services, minimise disruption and safeguard jobs.”
