    Does your MP really know what bus travel is like, and how important buses are?

    Invite your MP on a bus journey to find out - and persuade him or her to improve the Bus Services Bill along the way! Here's how.

  • Jenna says "Buses should be 100 times better"

    It's great to see buses moving up the political agenda, but the Bus Services Bill needs to be better.

    Please email your MP today.

    Just 15% of the UK population takes more than 70% of our flights. We think everyone should have one tax-free flight a year, with each additional flight being taxed at an increasing level. Best of all, this levy would make it unnecessary to build any new runways. 

    Please ask your MP to support this proposal.

    Brexit must not be used as an excuse to backtrack on climate, nature, air pollution or other EU environmental protections.

    Campaign for Better Transport is part of The Climate Coalition which has launched a Pledge for the Environment. Please ask your MP to sign.
