If, in the wake of the government-sponsored bus role for Passenger Focus, you thought that the National Federation of Bus Users was going to lie down and die, think again.
One of the reasons for the post is that BUUK, so far, has struggled to get its message across in the same way as its richer and more articulate railway siblings. Trains seem to attract a higher profile, yet the bus service is more important to more people more of the time. But bus passengers are not only without a strong voice, they’re also fragmented. BUUK therefore needs someone who’ll raise its game.
Could that someone be you?
BUUK needs to develop from what the industry tends to perceive as a set of well-meaning amateurs-come-enthusiasts to a high profile organisation whose membership increases significantly. BUUK already partners with the CPT and industry for the bus appeals body and this is a strong base upon which to grow. Indeed, in its chair, former transport minister Gillian Merron is already sending the right signals.
