Local Transport Bill to third reading

The Local Transport Bill has passed its Lords Committee stages, and will now go for its third reading before going to the House of Commons.

The Bill is designed to improve local transport services, and focuses on bus services.

However, the Bill also sets out legislation for road local pricing schemes, so that local authorities can implement schemes easily. These local schemes are designed to be interoperable, but run independently.

Reform the arrangements for local transport governance in the major conurbations. This aims to encourage stronger local leadership and a coherent approach to transport across individual local authority boundaries and across different transport modes .
