The coalition Government already makes substantial sums of money available to support local bus services. We are also implementing various reforms to make this more effective. In July we announced arrangements to give local councils more say over how bus service operators grant should be spent in their areas. And, we aim to incentivise more partnership working through Better Bus Areas.
