The Bus Services Act 2017 provides the Authority with powers to reform the bus market and these provisions provide for new types of partnership schemes and the option to franchise bus services. As part of the Combined Authority’s delivery of bus reform, we have commissioned a Bus Reform Task Force whose role is to consider and recommend appropriate reforms to bus services, strategies and public information.
