Pre-ballot Information: Explanatory Memorandum
Policy Objectives of the Proposed Order
This LCO will be used to re-introduce a public service ethos to public transport provision, requiring local authorities to ensure that communities are well served by a regular, modern and safe bus service. This will help create a genuinely integrated public transport system in Wales, specifically ensuring that less profitable but socially valuable routes are properly served.
These new requirements on local authorities regarding bus services may be met through one or a combination of private, public or co-operative/mutual models.
