The Department for Transport has confirmed an extension to the Bus Recovery Grant for a further six months. 

Responding to the news, a CPT spokesperson said: 

"We welcome the Government’s announcement of recovery funding to support bus services in local communities for a further six months. 

"Today’s announcement will help bus operators and local authority partners to balance a network of reliable and affordable services in the short-term as bus networks adapt to new travel patterns.

"For the longer-term, we will continue to work closely with central Government and local authorities to encourage existing and new passengers to get on board the country's buses, ensuring they are provided the best possible services."
