COVID-19 relief funding is available for commercial bus operators in England, outside of London and Greater Manchester.
This programme is provided by the Department for Transport (DfT).
Objectives of Fund
The COVID-19 Bus Service Support Grant (CBSSG Restart) has been set up to support commercial bus operators in England in recognition of the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) on their revenue due to reduced patronage.
Payments aim to ensure that operators can provide service levels of up to 100% of pre-COVID-19 levels without the operator making a profit or a loss.
