3 November 2021 – Local bus statistics in Great Britain, including passengers, mileage and vehicle fleet, for the year ending March 2021 have been published on the DfT website.
The summary relates only to England to match the coverage of the Department for Transport (DfT) bus policy, but the tables also cover Scotland and Wales.
The number of local bus passenger journeys in England fell by 2.5 billion or 61% to 1.57 billion in the year ending March 2021. The fall can largely be attributed to nationwide movement restrictions introduced throughout 2020/21 in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
