star this property answer text <p>On 30 September, the Government announced a package worth £220 million to transform bus services.</p><p> </p><p>We will shortly be seeking expressions of interest from local authorities and bus operators in developing an all-electric bus town or city. Up to £50 million will be invested to contribute to new buses and the supporting infrastructure.</p><p> </p><p>We will also be seeking expressions of interest for the new £20 million fund for trialling on-demand services in rural and suburban areas.</p><p> </p><p>The Government will also pay an extra £30 million directly to local authorities in 2020/21 to enable them to improve current bus services or to restore lost services.</p><p> </p><p>The Government will fund a 4 year ‘Superbus’ pilot in Cornwall to bring down fares. We are also exploring whether a further pilot could be developed to decrease fares and improve frequencies in an urban area through the local authority and bus operators entering into a partnership to deliver a Superbus network. The local authority would provide capital investment in bus lanes and other bus priority measures, in exchange for the bus operators delivering high frequency services.</p><p> </p><p>Further details of the package can be found online with the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/a-better-deal-for-bus-users/a-better-deal-for-bus-users" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/a-better-deal-for-bus-users/a-better-deal-for-bus-users</a></p>
