Scheduled coach support package announced for holiday period services

15 Dec 2020

Transport Secretary announces up to £3 million for coach services to meet Christmas travel demand 

 

A support package worth up to £3 million that will enable coach operators to provide additional scheduled services over the Christmas travel window, was announced on 12 December 2020 by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps.

 

The government is working with the coach industry, including National Express, megabus and Snap – who together provide a network of coach services covering Great Britain – to ensure extra scheduled services are provided over the Christmas travel window (23 to 27 December), including on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

 

People are reminded that however they choose to travel this Christmas, they must plan carefully and book ahead where possible to avoid disappointment, as availability could become limited and they may not be able to travel on their preferred service.
