“We’ve been shafted”: South Yorkshire Mayor responds to announcement on Bus Services Improvement Plan

Responding to the disgraceful announcement that South Yorkshire won’t receive a penny in financial support for its transformative Bus Services Improvement Plan, South Yorkshire Mayor and Barnsley Central MP Dan Jarvis has slammed the government over its broken promises.

Commenting, Jarvis said:

“We’ve been shafted. We submitted a visionary and detailed bid to transform our bus services; we needed central government to put its money where its mouth is and back our ambition. They have once again failed the travelling public in South Yorkshire.

“The government’s so-called commitment to levelling up – which supposedly has buses at its heart – is nothing more than an empty promise.
