As we round off the year we thought we'd share this great tribute from transport solutions provider Ticketer for all the drivers, operators and local authorities who have kept our buses running throughout 2022
Funding for the future

While our call for an urgent extension to Government's Covid Recovery funding was successful, passengers still face devastating cuts to services so we will continue to call for long-term support Read more

Be kind

We launched a new series of on-board posters in English and Welsh asking people to 'Be Bus Kind' when travelling. The posters are free to download with space for operators to include their own logos Read more

The transport gap

The £1.15 billion of funding awarded through the National Bus Strategy was welcome news for some but risked widening the transport gap with areas whose bids were unsuccessful Read more

Improving the journey

Following the success of our series of online events with Disability Rights UK and CPT, we carried out an Accessibility Survey to identify what operators are doing to improve access to transport Read more

Saving London's buses

TfL reversed a number of planned cuts to London's bus services following concern from groups including Bus Users that older, younger and disabled people would be disproportionately affected  Read more

We're on board

Throughout 2022 we've been working with operators to monitor their services on issues ranging from reliability and punctuality to customer service and driving, to improve services for passengers Read more

Strength in diversity

In 2022 we set out to find new board members with the energy and drive to make transport more accessible. It's been a huge success and we're looking forward to updating you in the new year Read more

Catch the Bus Month

We ran our first ever Catch the Bus Month during September which saw operators, passengers, local groups, charities, and transport bodies across the UK celebrate the vital contribution buses make to our daily lives Read more

Cheers drive!

Research from CPT found that four fifths of us thank our bus and coach drivers making them the UK's most thanked workers and helping to make bus journeys a positive experience for everyone Read more

Joining forces

We joined forces with Campaign for Better Transport and 11 other leading organisations ahead of this year's Autumn Statement to call for assurances of support for bus services Read more

Fair fares

As 2022 comes to a close, Government has officially announced rollout of the £2 bus fare cap which we'd like to see extended so that all passengers can save money on these vital services Read more

2022 and beyond

During 2022 we contributed to consultations and reviews, represented passengers at seminars and on panel discussions and ran our own in-person and virtual events. We'll continue to build on this vital work in the new year to improve transport for everyone Read more
