National Assembly Cross Party Group on Community Transport established
A National Assembly Cross Party Group on Community Transport has been set up. The purpose of this group will be to improve engagement on accessibility and social inclusion issues between the community transport sector, Assembly Members and, where appropriate, the Welsh Government. At its first meeting the group agreed that the first two areas of focus will be funding (in light of the Community Transport Concessionary Fares Initiative) and hospital transport. Further information is on this link: www.senedd.assemblywales.org/mgOutsideBodyDetails.aspx?ID=294
Cross-Party Groups may be set up by Assembly Members in respect of any subject area relevant to the Assembly. A group must include Members from three political party groups represented within the Assembly. Cross-Party Groups are not formal Assembly groupings and are not, therefore, bound by any of the Assembly's Standing Orders. They have no formal role in policy development.
Also of note:
The Public Transport Users Committee for Wales (PTUC) has just placed a report on public information, “PTI - Research into Best Practice”, on its website: http://wales.gov.uk/topics/transport/public/ptuc/reports/ptiresearch/?lang=en
Assembly Cross Party Group on Rail. The purpose of this group is to champion the case for investment in and improvement of the rail network in Wales and specifically to promote the economic and social benefits that improved passenger and rail freight services will bring to Wales.
