Since privatisation the costs of paperwork have increased dramatically with so many organisations to deal with to enable anything to get done.
Rail privatisation has caused me huge problems over the past sixteen years, primarily because the companies refuse to co-operate with each other over problems.
Railways should be public transport, not private enterprise.
Make public transport a public concern once more. Tickets are not profit slips for fat cats.
Dedicate real investment for serious mass transit projects that realise the full benefits of existing rail alignments.

We're so happy! Well done to everyone involved!! ...
How, exactly, will this bring better buses to Manchester?
Let's just wait and see what the fares are, there already a rip off.
Wait for the bill to need paying!
Grew up in Manchester. Selnec busses were orange, cheap, regular and reliable. Well done Manchester!
great! now lets get the NHS & THE RAILWAYS BACK!!
Well done Andy. West Midlands next please Andy Street (or possibly Liam Byrne after May).
Cheap, frequent buses hopefully. Taking a taxi shouldn’t be cheaper than a bus.
I think we need a bit more information before the euphoria begins!
See Burnham Dan.
Great work nice to see and now for the rest of the country
so are they going to buy all operators buses to do this
Does this mean the classic orange buses are coming back?

I thought it was the rail companies who imposed fare increases, not the gov.
By the time HS2 is finished no one will be able to afford to use it.
So true werst thing they ever did just like they did when they closed a lot of the lines
it was the same under BR price rises and the same shit service ,except its worse under franchising
