The National Bus Strategy

In March 2021 the Government launched a new, long-term National Bus Strategy for England, backed by £3 billion in investment. To help achieve this strategy, there is a requirement for all local transport authorities to work with local bus operators to come up with ambitious plans for improving their local bus services and encouraging more people to use them. This arrangement is referred to as an ‘Enhanced Partnership’. The Enhanced Partnership will bring together the important skillsets and contributions of both parties, critical to a strong bus network within the Borough.

An Enhanced Partnership is a formal agreement, the agreement will include a clear vision of the improvements that the Enhanced Partnership is aiming for (known as an Enhanced Partnership Plan) and accompanying actions to achieve them (set out in one of more Enhanced Partnership schemes). Later this year we are required to publish a local Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP), detailing how we propose to improve the bus services within the Borough.

To help us develop our Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP), we are giving Telford and Wrekin residents the chance to have their say about their local bus services, we would like to hear from both bus users and non-bus users. 

Complete our survey to have your say

Alternative formats to complete the survey can be requested by emailing transport.contracts@telford.gov.uk.

Closing date: 31 July 2021.

As part of this process we are required to publish a notice of our Intent to Prepare an Enhanced Partnership Plan and Schemes.
