Nearly £50m is coming to Norfolk to improve the county’s bus transport and services.
It comes from the Government and will help pay for a number of projects based on what the public wants and what bus companies can deliver.
Norfolk has been successful in securing £49.55m of funding from the Department for Transport to make the county’s bus services and facilities better.
The final plan includes lower fares for under 25s, bus priority schemes, more real time information, improved waiting areas, travel hubs for different types of transport, and new and more frequent services.
Martin Wilby, the county councillor responsible for highways, infrastructure and transport, said: “I’m thrilled to hear that we have now secured this funding for Norfolk and look forward to seeing some of our plans being delivered to create an improved bus service for both residents and visitors of the county. Since being notified of the indicative allocation from the DfT our team has worked hard alongside bus operators to provide all the information and create the robust plan that was required to secure the funding.”
