Great news! I’m absolutely delighted that Andy Burnham has announced Greater Manchester will take back control of its bus services. I have been calling for this for years, notably since my speech on the Buses Bill which creates these powers 4 years ago. Local Labour councillors have also been persistent in calling for Better Buses. No more finding out that routes are being cancelled without consultation, no more mismatched disjointed fares, no more excluding the public from decision making!
