Local Authority Bus Subsidy Grant 2018 to 2019

Sub heading

Department of Transport logo

Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG) is paid to operators of eligible bus services and community transport organisations to help them recover some fuel costs.

​The amount each bus operator receives is based on their annual fuel consumption. This is funded and administered by the DfT.


The BSOG is ring fenced and can be used to fund the provision of supported bus services or other related transport provision with the main criteria remaining that as a result of the change the transport operators should be 'no better and no worse off'.

In line with guidance provided as part of the BSOG funding, we can confirm that funding for this year has been utilised to help deliver reduced emissions from bus operators within the town.
 
This assists with the delivery of the objectives in the Luton Town Centre Air Quality Action Plan, the delivery of which is part of the Corporate Transport Board.
 
The grant was used for supporting bus operators to improve services and support for RTPI (Real Time Passenger Information) work in this area will continue into the future to replace old and faded information signs.
