Greener Journeys, Value of the Bus to Society

This report presents the findings of a study that aimed to identify, articulate and quantify the economic, social and environmental impacts of frequent and reliable local bus services, considering the impact that bus services have on the ability of households to participate in economic and social activities and ultimately on levels of economic, social and environmental deprivation. The work was commissioned by Greener Journeys and was independently undertaken by KPMG LLP in association with the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds.
