Telford & Wrekin Council is urging the Government to give local councils and residents greater say on any changes that commercially run bus companies make to bus services.
The call comes as Arriva, the main bus company operating in the borough, is due to impose the biggest shake-up of local bus services in more than 10 years.
Due to come into effect on 19 July, these changes would see Arriva significantly affect many bus services in the borough. View the news article for more information.
