Barnsley MP calls for communities to be given control of bus services

New figures have revealed that compared to 2010, there were one million less miles of local bus routes operating in Yorkshire and Humber last year.

Mr Dugher said at the same time bus fares have increased.

The MP said: “Local bus services are the lifelines of our communities.

“Whilst the bus companies are coining it in, local bus routes are being slashed and this Government says everything is fine.

“The bus market is clearly broken and the way local services are provided is not fit for purpose. Labour will stand up for passengers by changing the way things work.”
