On the 9th November 2020, the Scottish Government announced the launch of a long term £500 million programme of investment in ambitious bus priority infrastructure; supporting local authorities, in partnership with bus operators, to tackle the negative impact of congestion on bus servicesThe aim of these interventions is to ensure that journeys are quicker and more reliable, thereby encouraging more people to travel by bus. This fund, called the Bus Partnership Fund, which is part of the Scottish Government’s response to the climate emergency, is also expected to leverage and enable other bus service improvements to tackle the climate emergency, reduce private car use and increase bus patronage.
