Transport (Scotland) Act 2001

Section 12 Eligibility for service subsidies

26.This section amends section 63(5) of the Transport Act 1985 to enable authorities to provide a subsidy to an operator where a service would not otherwise be provided because it did not meet the standard required in a QP scheme. This power will enable authorities to provide a subsidy to an operator to enhance the quality of its buses, perhaps in an area where it would not otherwise be commercially viable to do so.
