Funding pack published for rural schemes

Guidance to help transport providers secure funding for rural transport schemes was launched by the Countryside Agency this week.

The information pack contains details of funding programmes for rural transport partnerships (RTPs), bringing together suppliers, planners, the community and the business sector to promote rural transport. It follows an evaluation of RTPs published in June.

The list covers initiatives such as bus service operator grants, concessionary fares, EU and government subsidies, grant-making trusts and research grants.

The agency is due to hand over responsibility for road transport schemes to DEFRA next April.
