The actual costs and benefits will depend on how franchising is implemented at the local level. The potential impacts of the Buses Bill proposals will be set out in the Impact Assessment which will accompany the introduction of the Bill.

When considering the costs of bus franchising it will be important for the authority to consider alternatives as well as the costs and benefits of proposals.
