The Bus and Coach Forum of The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) is holding a Great Bus Debate which aims to debate how the industry should work to develop a vision for the future.

The issues which will be covered include the reductions to BSOG, the localism agenda and opportunities like the 2012 Olympics.

Peter Hendy CBE, CILT(UK) president and commissioner, Transport for London and Giles Fearnley, MD, UK Bus division, FirstGroup Plc, will discuss and debate their visions for the future of the urban bus over the next 10 years at an event near the Olympics Park in Stratford on March 22.

The debate will form part of a ‘three in one’ forum event. Attendees will go on an escorted tour of the Olympic Park followed by the launch of the 2012 UK Bus Awards.

Austin Birks, CILT Bus and Coach Forum chairman, said: “This is a rare and exciting event giving forum members and others the opportunity to take part in a lively debate about the future of their sector and to hear the views of two highly experienced bus industry professionals.”

The free event is being held from 1700 to 2100hrs on March 22.
