Section 34 Duty of authority to make information available
58.This section provides that, if arrangements cannot be made by agreement, local transport authorities, alone or jointly, must make the bus information available, or secure that it is made available. In such a case the authority may recover reasonable costs from the operators concerned. Operators must furnish information to the authority or a third party in such circumstances, to enable the authority to meet these obligations. The traffic commissioner must be informed of any requirement to provide information imposed on operators of local services, and failure to implement such obligations may result in enforcement action by the traffic commissioner under section 111 of the 1985 Act (by virtue of consequential amendments made to that section by section 40 of the Act).
