JERSEY’S bus service has had ‘impressive results’ since it was taken over by LibertyBus in 2013, a Labour MP has said during a debate at Westminster.

Shadow Transport Minister Daniel Zeichner said that the partnership contract between the States and LibertyBus to run the service had been ‘successful’ and customer satisfaction had improved since it was implemented.

LibertyBus took over Jersey’s bus routes from Connex in 2013 and, despite initial setbacks, passenger numbers have increased by almost a third. Under the arrangement, LibertyBus and the States share profits made by the service. Mr Zeichner’s comments came during a debate on whether more franchising of bus networks, such as the LibertyBus arrangement, should be introduced in the UK.
