Capped fares on safer buses?

Bus travel in England will be safer, more efficient and easier to use under new Government proposals.

The plans – published today in a consultation paper – outline a range of measures to improve services including a ban on the consumption of alcohol on buses and a requirement for operators to provide more advanced warning of changes to services.

Also included in the consultation are proposals to allow local authorities to set maximum ticket prices for all, or certain categories, of passengers at a level less than the existing commercial fares.

The proposals are part of the Government’s strategy to increase bus travel in order to tackle congestion.
