Table 3.4 of Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses 2006 (Cm 6811) sets out total public expenditure on transport as a percentage of GDP for each year from 1987-88 to 2005-06; no separate identification is made of public transport spending. Table 3.6 of that publication provides a breakdown of total transport spending from 2000-01 to 2005-06 into various sub-functions, which include 'local public transport' and 'railways'.
