Where do we go from here?
Ministers are facing pressure to reform the system of bus
deregulation across Britain outside of London. With passenger
numbers continuing to fall in many parts of the country, local
politicians in the conurbations look enviously at the dramatic
growth in passengers recorded in London where services
are regulated. Transport secretary Alistair Darling has said
he is reviewing the options and that there may be a need for
legislative change. He has also said that local authorities will
probably need more powers over buses if they are to introduce
innovative demand management measures such as congestion
charging.
So what is the way forward?
Does the solution lie in trying to make the existing system
work better and by making greater use of statutory quality
partnerships? After all, some parts of the country have
recorded significant passenger growth under deregulation.
Can the so-far untried route of Quality Contracts deliver the
necessary changes at acceptable cost or are the barriers to
their delivery insurmountable? And what are the options for
legislative change?
This one day conference will present an opportunity to
discuss these and other issues with many of the key players
in the industry.
