Government Grants for Public Transport Services in Hampshire

Bus Services Operating Grant (BSOG)

Following the Government’s decision in 2013 to devolve to Local Authorities the Bus Services Operators Grant (BSOG), Local Authorities are obliged, as a condition of this grant, to publicise how they have made use of this funding.

In the year 2019/20, Hampshire County Council’s BSOG payment of £1.068m was incorporated into the revenue budget for supported bus services and divided between these services proportionally.

This confirmation is usually made to the Department for Transport via a short survey. Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Department for Transport have made the decision not to undertake this survey this year.

COVID-19 Bus Services Support Grant (CBSSG)

The Department for Transport have provided funding for Local Authorities to make up the shortfall local bus operators have experienced in their revenue on County Council contracted services. A breakdown on how this funding has been spent will be provided here in due course.
