CPT Election Centre 14/11/2019
Welcome to the Confederation of Passenger Transport’s (CPT) Election Centre. This resource is designed to give you everything you need as a bus and coach operator to engage with candidates on the issues that matter to the industry and understand what each of the main parties is proposing in policy areas that impact bus and coach.
CPT’s priorities for government
CPT has produced two documents setting out the policies the next government needs to introduce to help the bus and coach industry continue to deliver for passengers, the economy and the environment. Our bus document was created alongside the Campaign for Better Transport.
Please share these documents with your local candidates and encourage them to support the proposals if they are elected.
Find my candidates
You can find out who is standing in your constituency be entering your postcode at the below website (you will be redirected to an external site). The deadline for candidates to register is 4pm on 14 November and search tools may take a few days to update following the deadline.
Getting in touch with candidates
The election campaign is a great opportunity to tell those standing what you think they should be focusing on should they be elected as a Member of Parliament at the election. To help you contact your local candidates about bus and coach issues CPT has produced template letters or emails which you can access below. Remember it is always better to make any correspondence as personal as possible and don’t forget to share CPT’s priorities for government documents!
CPT has compiled a manifesto analysis of what those seeking to form the next Government could mean for bus and coach. The latest version is available at the below link.
A short two minute video is also available where the main policies are discussed.
