A return of locally-regulated buses is a new dawn for UK’s public transport

Greater Manchester’s Bee Network signals a bright future for English public transport, according to Mayor Andy Burnham. The region is embracing a locally-regulated bus system, the first of its kind since the 1980s outside London.

Fares are set to drop by 20%, with 50 new electric buses already operational in Bolton, Wigan, Salford, and Bury. Although there were initial hiccups with delays and missed buses, Burnham assured passengers of accountability. The rollout is expected to be completed by 2025, offering an efficient and affordable transport alternative that prioritizes the public’s interest and aims to reduce car usage.
