ATOC disappointed with Chancellor's budget

The Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC) expressed concern at the message about public transport conveyed by the Chancellor's Budget statement today (Tuesday).

Elizabeth Haywood, ATOC Communications Director, said: "The Deputy Prime Minister set a growth target for passenger use of rail, and this budget does nothing to underpin that commitment. Instead, it is a motorists' budget, reducing the real cost of travelling by car.

"The £280 million increase announced to cover all transport modes is welcome, but is only a drop in the ocean. It is to be hoped the Ten Year Transport Plan - due in July - and the Comprehensive Spending Review will set out far higher long-term investment plans".
