Network Support Grant

Closing Date: –

Support is available for Scotland’s commercial bus operators, and community transport operators, aimed at aiding their recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Scottish Government has created the Network Support Grant (NSG) to support bus services in 2022-23. This will include temporary additional financial support during the recovery from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The aim of the NSG is principally to benefit passengers. It does this by helping operators to keep their fares down and enabling operators to run services that might not otherwise be commercially viable, thus contributing to the maintenance of the overall bus network. It also contributes to the operation of Community Transport services, allowing people who cannot make use of conventional bus services to access local services.
