BSOG will not be cut

The threatened Bus Service Operators’ Grant which is currently worth over £300m each year to bus services, will not be cut in the current Spending Review.

Bus Users, along with other leading transport bodies, lobbied Chancellor George Osborne ahead of the Autumn Statement, warning of the massive impact cuts to BSOG would have. Chair of Bus Users the Rt Hon Norman Baker has welcomed the decision: “This is great news for bus services and for passengers. Cutting the BSOG would have led to fare increases and further cuts to services, causing particular hardship to vulnerable people and people on low incomes.

“This relatively small source of funding is a small price to pay for the massive contribution buses make to society.”
