Independent Bus Operators and the National Bus Strategy

Webinar: 10:00 - 12:00

7 Jul 2021


Series: Passenger Transport Recovery

Independent Operators & the National Bus Strategy 

Join us on Wednesday 7th July for an in-depth look at the opportunities within the Government's National Bus Strategy (NBS) for independent bus operators and local authorities, including a showcase of Passenger's innovative myTrip product. 

Collaboration between operators and local transport authorities (LTAs) is now key to opening new sources of government funding. The NBS makes clear the expectation for Enhanced Partnership working, and all local transport authorities in England (LTAs) are expected to publish a Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) in October 2021, setting out how each LTA will use their Enhanced Partnership or franchising scheme to deliver “an ambitious vision for travel by bus”.

Smaller operators not affected by the England-wide strategy may also wish to attend to consider the benefits available by applying the learnings of the NBS and working locally with others.

This 90-minute webinar is dedicated to examining the opportunities for independents and how they may be realised.

How independent operators can work together to meet the requirements of the National Bus Strategy:

• intro to the National Bus Strategy
• digital transformation to bring people back to bus
• myTrip and the National Bus Strategy
• opportunities for regional networks: let's think & act local
• sector analysis & the impact of COVID
• lessons from an independent operator
• questions and discussions

Chair: Bill Hiron, Managing Director of Stephensons of Essex, Chair ALBUM (Association of Local Bus Company Managers)
