Major Updates

MetroBus is a rapid public transport system. It is designed to quickly transport large numbers of people around the area by using a combination of segregated busways and bus lanes. It will be connected to the traffic light system to ensure a fast, reliable, express service between 94 strategically placed stops. It’s a smarter way of travelling that will speed up journey times, relieve congestion and reduce levels of pollution.

The MetroBus network will provide direct routes to key destinations around the area, enabling thousands of people to access employment, education and leisure opportunities from densely populated areas.

Quality Partnership Scheme (QPS)

The making and publishing of the QPS is the formal statement of the agreed minimum standards that MetroBus operators must meet.

The standards cover things like vehicle quality, vehicle emissions, branding, maximum fares, minimum service frequencies and how often the buses are cleaned.  A regular Performance Review Group will meet to ensure that both sides maintain the necessary standards and provide a reliable, regular, high quality MetroBus service for passengers.
