Buses are the most-used form of public transport. They serve a vital role within communities, connecting people to key public services, such as schools and hospitals, local amenities, and work – with more people commuting by bus than all other forms of public transport combined1. Overall, there are three times as many trips in England made by local bus than made by rail, with over 60% of public transport trips made by bus2.
