To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to his Department's consultation Bus Services Act 2017: accessible information which closed on 16 September 2018, when he plans to bring forward legislative proposals on the requirement for all buses to have audio visual next stop and final destination announcements; and whether he plans to publish guidance on that matter.

The Government understands the importance of accessible on-board information in helping bus passengers to travel with confidence, and in Summer 2018 published a public consultation on proposals to require its provision on local bus services throughout Great Britain.

We continue to analyse responses to the consultation and expect to announce our next steps regarding the making of Regulations and publication of guidance later in the year.
