Quality Contract For Bus Services In Tyne And Wear

EDM number 378 in 2014-15, proposed by Stephen Hepburn on 20/10/2014.
Categorised under the topic of Buses.

That this House welcomes the plan for a quality contract for bus services in Tyne and Wear which will allow fares to be capped, services to be protected and London-style smart and simple Oyster-style ticketing to be introduced; congratulates the Tyne and Wear Combined Authority for being the first city region to seek to introduce London-style bus regulation and encourages other city regions to follow Tyne and Wear's lead; and condemns multi-millionaire Brian Souter's campaign of threats and misinformation in order to protect Stagecoach's monopoly profits at the expense of low income bus users.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
