Partnerships is the theme of the CPT’s third Northern Bus Summit, set to take place on November 15 next year.

“Partnerships still provide the best bus services for the travelling public” is the full title of the free one-day conference open to operators in CPT’s Northern and Yorkshire regions at a venue to be confirmed in Manchester. It is being organised by the CPT’s North West Bus Commission.

The conference will demonstrate what can still be achieved by transport authorities, bus operators and passenger representatives working together, in spite of austerity measures and regulatory challenges.

For the first time, this Northern Bus Summit will be widening its scope to cover the whole of the north of England. With the support of the DfT’s Northern Engagement Team, the event will be masterminded by CPT members within the three CPT northern regions – North West, Northern and Yorkshire.

Phillipa Sudlow, CPT’s NW regional manager explained: “After the success of the 2006 and 2009 events, it is hoped the wider scope and central northern location will attract again all those who are keen to realise the development of quality bus services.”
