Public service vehicles: financial year ending March 2015

An annual report which includes information on bus services, bus passes, frequency of buses and taxis.



Most of the information presented here is derived from annual returns made to DfT by a sample of 700 holders of Public Service Vehicle operators’ licences (‘the PSV survey’). This survey provides information on passenger journeys, vehicle miles, passenger receipts and operating costs. Separate, smaller, surveys managed by DfT collect information about fare changes, service reliability and quarterly patronage from the larger bus operators.
