Bus and rail transport in Wales
The Climate Change, Environment, and Infrastructure Committee (“the Committee”) agreed to undertake an inquiry into bus and rail transport in Wales.
The Committee considered:
>>>Priorities for post covid recovery for Welsh bus and rail;
>>>The action required to achieve Welsh Government targets for modal shift to these modes, and behaviour change; and
>>>Views on proposals for bus and rail reform – including UK Government plans to reform the rail industry, and Welsh Governments plans for regulation of bus services / the Bus White Paper.
