Claiming the Bus Recovery Grant

10 Mar 2023

The Bus Recovery Grant (BRG) has been set up to support commercial bus operators in England due to the ongoing impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) on their revenue from reduced patronage.  

Who is eligible?

To claim the BRG, you must:

  1. Be a public bus operator running commercial or community bus services in England outside of the London and Greater Manchester areas.
  2. Have completed an application to join the BRG scheme – you cannot now apply to join the scheme and make claims.
  3. Meet the eligibility criteria for the Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG).
  4. Currently be running at 80% or more of pre-COVID-19 mileage levels – if your mileage is beneath this you must contact the Department for Transport at BRG@dft.gov.uk and your local transport authority (LTA).
