Local bus journeys in England down by 27 million

The latest annual bus statistics from the Department for Transport show the number of local bus passenger journeys in England fell by 27 million (0.6%) to 4.65 billion between 2014/2015. 

According to the report: "Since 2012/13, bus use in London has been higher than in ‘England outside London’. These latest statistics show a continuing trend of increasing bus use in London and gradual decline in England outside London.

"Bus mileage in England as a whole decreased by 0.6% when compared with the previous year. This was largely due to a 10% reduction in mileage on local authority supported services in England ourside London; commercial mileage increased by 1.4%."
