AN ANALYSIS OF BUS INDUSTRY PERFORMANCE TRENDS

This report describes the performance of the bus industry in England since 1982. It compares the performance trends found in London, the English Metropolitan Areas and the English Shire Counties. Diagrams are presented which show how: a) traffic and fares changes link together to produce trends in revenue; b) service volume and productivity link together to produce trends in costs; and c) both sets of factors link to explain overall financial performance. The results indicate that deregulation has caused substantial reductions in costs and improvements in productivity and service volume. However there has been a continuing loss of patronage and revenue. There has also been a loss of capital stock.
