Julian Huppert MP, Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Transport Committee, said:

"That is a fantastic achievement. Low carbon public transport is critical if we are to wean ourselves off fossil fuels. So too is a cheap and reliable transport system, otherwise people will simply choose to drive.

"The new spending announced today proves that Liberal Democrats in Government are dedicated to providing the quality local bus service which this country is so desperately lacking.

"Local Authorities will be able to provide real time travel information, smart ticketing, extra buses, Wi-Fi, improved accessibility, new bus stops, bus lanes, junction improvements and better traffic management.

"These reforms are exactly what local transport needs and they are exactly why Liberal Democrats in Government are committed to delivering on our manifesto commitment to meet our climate change goals and build a cheap, reliable transport service in every community"
