Bus union RMT on today's Govt bus strategy announcement

6 February 2020

RMT Press Office:

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

“This funding does not come close to restoring the millions cut from bus services across the UK since 2010 and despite these massive cuts the private bus companies have continued to pay out hundreds of millions in dividends to shareholders.

“It’s crystal clear that the privatisation and deregulation of the bus industry has failed and rather than paper over the cracks this Government needs to introduce a national bus strategy underpinned by serious investment and public ownership”
