Consultation description

This white paper sets out proposals for public transport bus services to better plan and grow the bus network. This will ensure it meets public needs, maximise the value we get for our investment in bus services and break our reliance on private cars.

The white paper sets out to:

  • require the franchising of bus services across Wales
  • allow local authorities to create new municipal bus companies
  • relax restrictions on existing municipal bus companies to put them on the same footing as new ones
