There'll be Government guidance issued in due course, which I assume will be in the form of operator guidance and public guidance. I doubt that this will happen until after the general election now.

I can confirm that Guidance will indeed be delayed by the General Election. Whether this will prove significant isn't clear.

Whatever the merits or benefits of this idea, it is yet another quango and yet another travel pass.

Why would it mean another quango? In fact, the article says that ultimately there will be one less (RailNorth) not one more.

TfM, NECA and everything in between.

They were all supposed to be a voice for a particular area and as far as I am aware, are staying.

Yes, but you said "another one". Plus, is the news article relevant to the Bus Services Bill? Surely, both this article and these various "quangos" (apart from NECA possibly) all rail oriented.

Well yeah. It's another quango, in addition to the many that exist already.
Aye, those others may focus on a specific region and/or agenda - but this one is 'another one' that will represent the north, in addition to the ones that exist already, focussing on those other agendas (agendai?).
