This Key Note Market Report provides an assessment of the market for bus and coach operators in Great Britain, focusing on the 5-year period between 2009 and 2013. Buses and coaches accounted for 5.4% of all passenger kilometres travelled in Great Britain in 2013, making these vehicles the second most-used method of transport after passenger cars. Buses also accounted for over three-fifths of all journeys made on public transport in 2013; both of these figures are indicative of the sectorís importance to Great Britainís transport network. However, despite this, passenger journeys on local bus services in Great Britain have been in decline in the past 5 years, with London being the only area to see growth over this period. 45.1% of all local bus journeys made in Great Britain were made in London.
