Section 29 Ticketing schemes

53.If satisfactory arrangements cannot be made under section 28, this section enables local transport authorities, alone or jointly, to set up ticketing schemes, whereby operators of local bus services are required to make and implement ticketing arrangements (as defined in section 28(5)). In doing so the local transport authority must be satisfied that this is in the public interest and would to any extent implement their relevant general policies (as defined in section 48(1)). A ticketing scheme may not be made unless the authority have complied with the notice and consultation requirements in section 30.
