Commenting, Norman Baker said:

"Liberal Democrats have long campaigned for more money for local transport and today we are delivering on this with a £560m funding boost.

"Good transport options at a local level are a vital part of reducing our carbon emissions, reducing congestion on our roads and encouraging economic growth.

"Not only are we investing more money, we are also reducing bureaucratic burdens on local authorities to cut red tape so they can deliver a better and more integrated transport system, from cycle support schemes to car sharing and better bus lanes.

"Money invested wisely can achieve all of our goals and that is why today's announcement is a win-win for everyone."
