Bus White Paper? The Public Transport system in Wales is a Joke

Commenting on the announcement, Welsh Conservative and Shadow Minister for Transport, Natasha Asghar MS, said:
“It is long past time that Labour ministers took the issue of busses seriously. With almost a quarter of people in Wales not having access to a car or van, it is vital that rural communities are able to use viable public transport.“Welsh Conservatives are passionate about tackling climate change here in Wales, but we have been disappointed by Labour’s lacklustre approach. Any action taken by the Labour ministers needs to be cost-efficient and effective. So far, Labour’s strategy has been neither.“I can only hope that Labour’s approach to handling buses is better than their handling of trains.”Bus Services (Wales) Bill (overview) 2020 https://gov.wales/bus-services-wales-bill-overview Written Statement: Publication of the summary report of responses to the White Paper ‘Improving Public Transport’This was published under the 2016 to 2021 administration of the Welsh Government  https://gov.wales/written-statement-publication-summary-report-responses-white-paper-improving-public-transport
