Transform Scotland has published a briefing ahead of today’s Members’ Debate on bus services in Parliament.

The briefing highlights key issues for bus services in Scotland and calls on the Scottish Government to:

  • Set out its aspirations for service levels, including network coverage,
    frequencies, fares, environmental standards and customer care
  • Examine why patronage trends differ across Scotland, and what lessons which can learned
  • Set out the reasons for long-term decline, and remedies to address this such as traffic
    management, bus priority measures
