Consultation description

Following the Red Tape Challenge exercise, the Department for Transport committed to review the Public Service Vehicles (Conduct of Drivers, Inspectors, Conductors and Passengers) Regulations. These regulations outline the duties and expected behaviour of bus drivers, conductors and inspectors towards passengers on regular bus and coach services, and vice versa.

The department’s proposed amendments will:

  • correct a number of outdated definitions and references to other legislation
  • update the rules on interactions between drivers, conductors and passengers
  • remove legal requirements that are now covered elsewhere in legislation or by operator’s conditions of carriage
