Make North East Lincolnshire buses free for the duration of the COP climate talks: Philip Jackson

We demand that Philip Jackson make bus travel in our area free for everyone for the duration of the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow this November.

Why is this important?

Public transport is the key to decarbonising our region and fighting climate change. But our public transport system won’t be around long if we aren’t willing to fight for it. Privatised bus companies are cutting routes, and ridership is going through the floor.

That’s why we’re calling on our local politicians to make bus travel free, for all of us, for the duration of the UN COP26 climate talks in Glasgow this November. The more people use and value our bus network, the harder it is for private interests to take it away from us.

Show our buses some love this November, and help us fight for free bus travel during COP26.
