Bus Passenger Survey
We consult more than 40,000 passengers a year to produce the Bus Passenger Survey (BPS). We measure passengers’ satisfaction with their local bus service for a representative sample of journeys.
Passengers rate their satisfaction with a wide range of aspects of their bus journey including the bus stop, waiting for the bus, on the bus, the outside of the bus and the bus driver as well as their overall satisfaction with that bus journey and their rating of value for money.
Download the most recent BPS report, published in March 2016 (survey carried out autumn 2015).
Our analysis tool lets you break down BPS results in the way that suits you best.

Devolution of bus service decisions
On the day Transport Focus published the Bus Passenger Survey it hosted in Manchester an event called ‘Exploring how devolution and other changes could impact bus passengers’ satisfaction.’ At the event we asked asked Baroness Kramer, Minister of State for Transport (Liberal Democrat); Gordon Marsden MP, opposition spokesperson for Transport (Labour); and David Sidebottom, Transport Focus’s passenger director; how passengers could benefit from the devolution of decisions about bus services. Watch the video below to find out what they said.
