What next for Enhanced Partnerships in Local Transport?

With almost all local transport authorities now committed to Transport Act Enhanced Partnerships what should happen next as opportunities open up for greater collaboration between authorities and operators?

In a series of webinars hosted by law firm Freeths, experts will discuss the current state of play, covering a number of issues that authorities and operators will want to learn more about.

Date: Tuesday 14th June Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pmVenue: Zoom

The issues that will be featured in the discussion include:

  • BSIP Funding - some but not all LTAs have received funding to kick start their partnerships. What makes a convincing case for funding partnership aspirations?
  • What should be the priorities for utilising BSIP funding?
  • Managing issues relating to network resilience at a time when Covid support is diminishing. Can partnership working contribute anything to the risk of service cuts and frequency reductions?
  • Making bus travel more passenger friendly through easy to understand fares. This is one of the key government expectations from Enhanced Partnerships - what obstacles lie in the path of achieving this and how can they be overcome?
