Call for action to halt fall in bus passengers

GREEN party chiefs are calling for immediate action to reverse a decline in bus passengers which has seen a 10 million drop over the last year.

Figures in the Local Transport plan (LTP2) show passenger journeys fell from 121 million to 111 million in the last 12 months and Sheffield Green Party leaders today warned if the trend continues bus use will be halved over the next five years.

They want council regulation of fares, routes and frequency in an effort to halt the falling figures.
