Birmingham Labour Bus Summit

  • 7 March 2019 18:00 - 20:00
  • Birmingham City Council, Council House, Birmingham, UK

7 March sees Birmingham’s first ever Bus Summit – and, if you can, I’d like you to come. Buses are an incredibly important part of our public policy. I want to hear what you think of our plans. The Shadow Transport Secretary, Andy McDonald MP, Birmigham City Council Leader, Ian Ward and Edgbaston MP Preet Gill, among others, will help us set out our future plans for Birmingham’s buses. It would be great to hear what you think. This week, we’ve launched Birmingham Bus Survey to find out more about what works on our buses and what needs improving. Please complete the survey: It closes on 1st March. The Tory government makes it as hard as they can for our buses to work for our people. The Tory Mayor doesn’t care. Millionaires like him don’t use them. The effective monopoly private operator has a duty to maximise profit, not to serve people. The West Midlands urgently needs a better service. Our buses should be more affordable, more accessible, more universal and better integrated. At the Bus Summit we will tell you our long-term plan for our buses and how we intend to achieve it. And you can tell us what you think. We will also be launching our future bus campaigns. Knowing what we want is one thing: taking the political fight to the Tories is the only way to get it. That, too, can only happen with your support. Councillor Waseem Zaffar Cabinet Member for Transport & Environment Birmingham City Council
