Missing the bus?

What is the future of bus services after the pandemic?

Event starts at 11.00-12.00 on 20 July 2020 at Online

Bus services have been among those hardest hit by the pandemic and lockdown. As restrictions begin to ease, this event will consider the future for bus services in urban areas, the lasting impact of the pandemic both for service provision and for transport policy.

How do we encourage people back onto buses at the right time? What role can they play in the recovery? Where does the pandemic leave the case for more local say in services outside London? What does national government need to do in its forthcoming bus strategy?

The event will hear from the following on the challenges for buses now and in the future:
Baroness Vere of Norbiton, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department for Transport
Alan Pilbeam, Chief Operating Officer of Abellio
Laura Shoaf, Managing Director of Transport for West Midlands
Clive Memmott, Chief Executive of Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce

Their contributions will be followed by a Q&A session chaired by Andrew Carter, Chief Executive of Centre for Cities.

This in an online event and places are limited. Please book your place below.
