Oxon to hand back Covid-19 bus grant

01 June 2020
 

Oxfordshire County Council is to hand back its £422,230 share of the DfT’s Covid-19 Bus Service Support Grant (CBSSG). The 12-week DfT grant (from 17 March to 8 June) has been used to ensure bus operators provide between 40 and 50 per cent of bus mileage. The majority was paid direct to bus operators but  £21.5m was paid to local authorities to cover tendered services. Oxfordshire County Council received an allocation even though it does not fund any tendered services. The council had planned to keep the money to pay for service enhancements as lockdown restrictions end but the DfT has said the funding should be returned. The area’s two main bus operators, Stagecoach and Go-Ahead also advised that the money be handed back for recycling into the commercial element of the grant scheme.
