Operators tell Sunak coach support is vital
More than 60 RHA coach members have signed a letter to the Prime Minister calling for a range of measures to support the industry.
It follows National Coach Week when the RHA launched its Manifesto for the Coach Industry which sets out key asks on recruitment, borders, decarbonisation and other key issues.
In the letter to Rishi Sunak operators said: “During National Coach Week this year, MPs and officials of all parties across the country showed their support for the coach industry.
“We are now writing to you, alongside the RHA, to impress upon you the importance of the coach industry to a wide range of economic sectors, to articulate to you the challenges our industry faces, and to propose to you measures that could help improve the business climate for coach drivers and operators across the nation.
“A thriving coach industry is essential to so many parts of the economy, and performs a vital role in so many communities. We implore you to recognise the seriousness of the challenges facing us at present, and engage with us to support our vital work.”
The RHA is calling on politicians across the country to support the coach sector – and to Think Co.A.C.H.E.S.
