Run international bus or coach services and tours

25 Jan 2021

What UK bus and coach operators need to do to provide services, tours, holidays and trips into Europe and other countries.

 

The updated information covers the three types of service into Europe and other countries

  • a regular service - this follows a timetable and picks up and drops passengers at fixed points on a specified route
  • a special regular service - this is a regular service that only carries specified types of passengers (for example, taking workers between home and work)
  • an occasional service - this covers all types of journeys not counted as a regular or special regular service (for example, one-off tourist trips)

Application and fees depend on the type of service being delivered and the countries the service operates into.
