A £1.4bn devolution deal has been unveiled for the North East of England which may also see a new mayor elected next year. 

Responding to the news, CPT's North of England Regional Manager Andrew McGuinness said: 

“The wider investment the new devolution deal will bring to the region is welcome news and follows on from the North East receiving the largest single Bus Service Improvement plan allocation in England.

“We look forward to continuing to work in partnership with Transport for North East, in conjunction with the new Combined Authority and Mayor on a package of bus policies that are essential to achieving net zero emissions and unlocking major social, economic and health benefits.”
