Possible questions

Questions likely to be asked include:

  • What do you see as the best ways of improving public transport in urban areas, particularly outside London? Is the key to success adequate funding and/or clear policy direction? How is levelling up weighed against ensuring value for money?
  • What are the timelines and projected costs for introducing contactless ticketing for local bus and rail networks across England? What is being done to promote inter-operator and inter-modal ticketing and timetabling?
  • What are your plans to improve bus services? Are bus services a government priority? Has the pandemic changed the Government’s approach to bus provision? Do you plan to ensure current service levels are sustained?
