Text of the Bus Services Act 2017 as in force today (including any amendments) within the United Kingdom, from legislation.gov.uk.

The Bus Services Act 2017 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It provides for local transport authorities to create partnership schemes to improve bus services in their areas, and to introduce advanced ticketing schemes. The Act also provides for mayoral combined authorities to partially re-regulate bus services by creating franchise schemes similar to the one operated by Transport for London. It, however, prohibits local authorities from reversing complete bus deregulation by forming a company for the purpose of providing local services.
