National Express Makes Bold Statement!

Councillor Phil Bateman MBE said today ” This news is pretty much ground breaking for a UK Bus and Coach operation. It should be welcomed as another solution towards our Climate Change Crisis, that we are currently facing up to as a City, and a conurbation. If I had any criticism at all, it is that the timescale, which I admit is already demanding, could be bettered by being shortened. Nevertheless I certainly feel that this is a very good announcement.”
