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:
- Be a public bus operator running commercial or community bus services in England outside of the London and Greater Manchester areas.
- Have completed an application to join the BRG scheme – you cannot now apply to join the scheme and make claims.
- Meet the eligibility criteria for the Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG).
- 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).
