Operators have you registered to BSOG+
The DfT have reopened the registration window of the BSOG+ scheme to the 29 December 2023. Operators will be able to claim BSOG+ from 1 January 2024, rather than 1 July 2023, which was the commencement date of the scheme.
How to register
The Bus Service Operators Grant Plus (BSOG+) is a new grant running from 1 July 2023 until 31 March 2025. Following recent re-issuing of the Terms and Conditions for BSOG+, the DfT have opened a new window for operators to join the scheme, if they have not already signed up.
Operators who wish to sign up to receive BSOG+ should review the T&Cs and submit a signed declaration form to BSOG.Plus@dft.gov.uk by 29 December 2023. It is important the eligibility criteria and data requirements is reviewed before submitting a signed declaration form to sign up.
Operators who are accepted onto BSOG+ will receive payments for eligible commercial services run between 1 January 2024 and 31 March 2025. It is important to note that BSOG+ funding will not be paid to those subject to debt recovery for BSOG or another Government Bus Funding Grant Scheme.
If you have already returned your declaration form to sign up to BSOG+, then you do not need to take any further action.
