Investing up to £50 million to deliver Britain’s first all-electric bus town or city;
Introducing the first ‘Superbus’ network approach to deliver low fare high frequency services in Cornwall;
£30 million extra bus funding to be paid directly to local authorities to enable them to improve current bus services or to restore lost services;
Investing over £20 million in bus priority measures in the West Midlands; and
£20 million to support demand responsive services in rural and suburban areas.
