CPT’s Cymru’s reaction to the £120m of support for bus services announced in the Draft Budget

The Welsh Government has today announced that it will protect revenue support for the nation’s bus network as part of its Draft Budget announcement, ensuring that more than £120m of support will be invested in bus services in 2024/25.

Responding to the news, Aaron Hill, Director of CPT Cymru, said:

“We are pleased to see that Welsh Government has been able to maintain investment levels and provide much-needed certainty for bus services in Wales.

“In recent months, operators have seen strong growth on many services, but without additional investment from Welsh Government, the reality is many services would have ceased from April.

“It will be challenging to protect all services in the context of increasing costs, but operators will now work closely with local authorities and Welsh Government to safeguard the best possible network for local passengers.”
