UIN 155381, tabled on 19 June 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, how many and what proportion of bus services in England are community-run.

Answered on

25 June 2018

In England, as of 20 June 2018, 827 community bus services are registered by holders of section 22 Community Bus Permits. This represents nearly five per cent of all local bus services that are registered with the Traffic Commissioners. The Department does not have figures for the number of bus services provided by section 19 permit holders, since these do not have to be registered.
