2019/20 Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG) figures for England published

concessionary reimbursment

The Department for Transport has released details of the BSOG payments made to local bus and community transport operators during 2019/20. In total £194.3m was paid out.

Also published are details of payments made to local authorities since the devolution of BSOG in 2013. This amounted to £55.2m in 2019/20.

It should be noted that the values are based on the amounts paid out by the Department over the 2019/20 financial year. This can differ from an operator’s final certified claim value submitted during the year due to timing differences. Such variances will arise where an operator’s claim year does not match the DfT’s financial year or a settlement (receivable or repayment) crosses into the following year.

If you would like to view details of the BSOG payments by operator and local authority they are available to view and download from the DfT website using the following links:-
