Local buses could be replaced by Uber-style services, says Grayling
Labour and campaigners angry at transport secretary’s suggestion bus services could be demand-led after funding falls by 33%
Local buses could be replaced by “Uber-style” rides, the transport secretary has said, sparking a backlash from Labour, trade unions and campaigners.
Chris Grayling told local government leaders that the future of local buses was a more bespoke service, suggesting on-demand models similar to the ride-hailing app could be used more widely to bridge funding gaps.
Rather than addressing the buses crisis, Chris Grayling’s solution is to say ‘let them take taxis’
