CPT seeks evidence
New CPT President, Chris Owens, has written to the organisation’s members reporting on progress being made to make it difficult for community transport operators to ‘encroach’ on its affiliates’ ‘territory’. CPT is now seeking evidence where its members have lost or are loosing business unfairly to a CT operator. It is taking up a case on behalf of one of its members whose business has been affected by the award of a lottery grant to a community operator. The CT operation used a ‘lack of local bus services’ to justify a grant for a luxury 16-seater that it used to compete in the market. The trade body is seeking more examples such as this to further its cause.
