The Government understands the importance of accessible on-board information in helping bus passengers to travel with confidence. Consequently, in Summer 2018, the Government 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.
