Section 33 Information about bus services
57.This section enables an authority to determine in accordance with their relevant general policies (as defined in section 48(1)), how and what local bus information should be made available in their area. Before making such a determination, the authority must consult the traffic commissioner, organisations representative of local bus users and such other persons as the authority thinks fit. If it is determined that information is not being made available in an appropriate way the authority must seek to make arrangements with operators for its provision in that way. This section and sections 34 and 35 do not apply to any authority to the extent that part of their area falls within the passenger transport area of the SPTA.
