star this property answer text <p>The bus market outside London is deregulated, with the vast majority of services provided on a commercial basis by private sector bus operators. Decisions on the level of fares is a commercial one for individual bus operators.</p><p> </p><p>The Department’s own analysis suggests that the 25% reduction in fuel price earlier this year could translate into around a 4.25% reduction overall in bus industry costs. However, most large bus operators, who between them provide the majority of services outside London, have fuel hedging arrangements in place, which mean that, in the short term, lower fuel prices do not translate into lower costs thus limiting their ability to reduce fares.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

The figures given above exclude some £47 million paid to TfL/GLA in this way for 2013/14 and some £93 million paid to them for each of 2014/15 and 2015/16.</p><p> </p><p>So, the figures given for the three years above are made up of (i) BSOG paid to bus companies and community transport operators for running services outside London, (ii) BSOG devolved to local transport authorities in the five areas which have been designated as Better Bus Areas, and (iii) BSOG for tendered (non-commercially viable) services outside London for which the funding has been devolved to individual local authorities since 1 January 2014.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>
