Bus service operator's grant report

Bus service operator's grant report

The results of the Bus Service Operators’ Grant annual outputs report 2018.

From 1 January 2014, the Department for Transport (DfT) has paid an annual grant to eligible local authorities in England to replace the Bus Service Operators’ Grant (BSOG) for tendered services. Until September 2018, this had been paid direct to the bus operators.

As part of the grant conditions, we’re required to report on how we have made use of these funds by completing a short survey issued by the DfT, details of which can be found below in the Devolved BSOG Grant:  Annual Outputs Report.
