Motion text

That this House notes that passenger bus services operated by private profit-making companies receive substantial amounts of public funding including direct route subsidy, concessionary fare schemes and fuel duty rebate; is concerned that these companies are putting profit before public service and that in consequence the public receives a less than comprehensive public bus transport service; and calls on the Government to introduce a form of regulation of bus services that ties the provision of public funding to quality, comprehensive and accountable public bus services.
