To ask the Scottish Government in what circumstances local bus services could be transferred to community control under the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 16 September 2016
The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 provides new rights for community bodies to participate in the design and delivery of public services and to request the transfer of public sector land and buildings. It does not provide a mechanism to transfer local bus services to community control.
