Labour announces plan for under 25s to have free bus travel
Councils opting for publicly owned bus services to get funds partly arising from road tax
Under 25s would have free bus travel under a Labour government, the party said, proposing a scheme that would be paid for by ring-fenced cash arising from road tax.
The party said local authorities who moved to introduce public ownership of bus services or franchising would be given the funds to provide free travel. The scheme would incentivise councils to create municipally owned bus companies.
