Make CT Plus Yorkshire an operator of last resort!
We are calling on the mayor and West Yorkshire council leaders to buy CT Plus Yorkshire and make it a public bus operator of last resort.
Why is this important?
Our bus services are in crisis. But the closure of CT Plus Yorkshire buses gives the mayor a golden opportunity to stop the bus cuts in their tracks.
If the mayor and council leaders in West Yorkshire agree to buy CT Plus Yorkshire buses, they could make it a publicly owned bus operator of last resort. As a public bus operator, the mayor could run bus services that big private companies have decided to cut in the interests of profit.
This could change the game in West Yorkshire, and put us back on the road to a publicly run bus network, working for passengers not profit.
West Yorkshire leaders were preparing to buy FirstBus, a much bigger operation, when the company was floating a sale back in 2019. So we know this is a realistic proposal.
Use our email action tool to send a message to the mayor and council leaders that you want them to take action and buy CT Plus Yorkshire.
