The CPT’s 2022 UK Bus and Coach Conference is scheduled for 25 and 26 January, and aims to show operators how to tackle current issues head on, as well as provide a platform to share views and get ideas. The 2022 conference will again take place online, allowing participants to take part ‘from the comfort of their own desk,’ the CPT said, and offers a chance for operators to be challenged to think about how they can do things differently to ensure they are playing their part to deliver better services for passengers and the UK’s ambitious climate change targets.

With a heritage stretching back to 1819, commercial road and passenger transport legal specialists Backhouse Jones will be the main sponsor for the conference.

The two-day conference will offer topics which include sessions looking at growing domestic tourism, changing travel behaviours, and recruiting and retaining staff. This is also an opportunity for delegates to hear from high-profile, influential speakers including Transport Minister Baroness Vere, Transport Select Committee Chair Huw Merriman and Visit Scotland’s Rob Dickson.

Backhouse Jones Directors, Jonathon Backhouse and James Backhouse, will also be speaking about the potholes of moving from paper to digital record-keeping and the future of bus regulation. The CPT UK Bus and Coach Conference is open to all and free for CPT members to attend. CBW will be in attendance; look out for coverage in a forthcoming issue.
