Opposition Day — Local Bus Services — 5 Nov 2014 at 18:50
The majority of MPs voted against ensuring that city and county regions are able to make use of London-style powers to develop more integrated, frequent, cheaper and greener bus services with integrated Oyster card-style ticketing.
The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House
- recognises that buses are an important tool to promote economic growth;
- regrets that, outside London, bus use is in decline;
- notes that since 2010 1,300 bus routes have been lost;
- further notes that since 2010 bus fares have risen five times faster than wages;
- further regrets that deregulation of the bus industry removed the ability of local authorities to co-ordinate their public transport networks; and
- calls on the Government to ensure that city and county regions are able to make use of London-style powers to develop more integrated, frequent, cheaper and greener bus services with integrated Oyster card-style ticketing.
