This Conservative government has awarded Surrey County Council £3,923,922 to support local bus services, ensuring passengers can continue to use the bus to get to work, shops and important appointments.
Surrey County Council can use the funding to improve local buses in several ways, such as by bringing in new services or routes, extending timetables through new morning or evening buses or making tickets cheaper through reduced fares for elderly or young people.
This new funding forms part of the £3.5 billion investment seen nationally since 2020 to protect and improve bus services while keeping fares low.
I look forward to working with Surrey County Council to ensure this new funding is spent in the most valuable way across Esher and Walton constituency.
