star this property answer text <p>There have been no discussions between the Secretary of State for Transport and the Chancellor of the Exchequer on that particular subject. Many employers already offer loans for season tickets or salary sacrifice schemes, and the Department has recently published revised guidance on cycle to work schemes and other ways in which employers can encourage people to cycle to work. The Government has also ensured that regulated rail fares can rise by no more than inflation since 2014.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Cycle to work schemes are employee benefit schemes available throughout the United Kingdom which can make it easier and cheaper for people to cycle to work. The Department has recently published refreshed guidance to employers on how to use them, and on other ways employers can encourage their staff to cycle to work. Department for Transport officials have regular discussions with their counterparts in the Devolved Administrations on policies to promote cycling and walking, and the Department will continue to look for opportunities to promote cycle to work schemes, working with the Devolved Administrations as appropriate.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department made clear, in its 2018 response to the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy Safety Review, that local councils should invest around 15 per cent of their local transport infrastructure funding on safe and efficient cycling and walking infrastructure. The Department continues to encourage local authorities to make use of the Transforming Cities Fund and other relevant national funding streams to support cycling and walking schemes and engages regularly with them in the development of their LCWIPs (Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans). Departmental officials have had discussions from time to time with representatives from the Local Government Association to discuss local authorities’ support for cycling and walking.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of public transport in reducing social isolation, particularly in rural areas. Where there is not enough demand for a bus route to be commercially viable, all local authorities in England have powers to subsidise bus services. The Department provides £43 million per year to local authorities to support this. As part of the 2018-19 local government finance settlement, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government responded to a number of councils’ concerns over rural services funding by increasing the Rural Services Delivery Grant to £81 million. The 2019-20 settlement increased the Grant to the same level. This recognises the extra costs of providing services in rural communities. It is up to local government officials to decide how this funding is distributed.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this
