To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, when he plans to respond to his Department's consultation entitled Bus Services Act 2017: accessible information, which closed on 16 September 2018; and what his Department's timetable is to bring forward legislative proposals to require bus operators to provide audible and visible information on local bus services.

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.
