Motion text

That this House has considered the important role that Community Transport Organisations (CTOs) play in towns across the UK; notes that community transport schemes help social inclusion; recognises that these schemes are primarily used by people who otherwise would not be able to travel; notes the increasing cost pressures on community transport schemes in recent years; further notes the increasing pressure on CTOs to run bus services where commercial public transport providers do not; and therefore urges the Government to limit regulation and resulting cost increases to ensure CTOs can stay in operation.
