TIL United Kingdom & European Union Bus Database and Market Insight

Bus operations continue to provide the majority of public transport journeys across Europe, so they are an integral part of any transport portfolio.

EU and domestic legislation are creating trends towards the out-sourcing of bus and tram operations.
