Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG) figures for England released

 

The Department for Transport has published details of BSOG payments to all local bus and community transport operators since 2010.

They have also provided information on payments to local authorities from 2013, when BSOG for tendered operations was devolved, as well as those payments in respect of Better Bus Area’s, which ceased at the end of March 2018.

It should be noted that the values provided are based on the actual amount paid out by the Department during each financial year. The figures will therefore differ from the final certified claim value due to timing differences – BSOG claim years are not always in line with financial years and settlement payments can cross into the following financial year. Additionally where a settlement payment has not been made in a financial year, possibly due to a delay in the processing of a claim, the operator will be shown as not claiming any incentives.

Details of the above payments can be found on the Government’s website.

If you have any questions on the Department for Transport payment schedule or would like to discuss how EPM can assist with your BSOG claim please contact Matthew Hanlon on 01527 556940 or at matthew.hanlon@epmorris.co.uk.
