The Department for Transport does not hold data centrally on the cost of vandalism to buses. This is partly due to the difficulties in collecting national statistics across the varied reporting systems of the numerous bus companies currently in operation.

However, the Department has commissioned research into the costs of crime committed on public transport in England, the results of which are due to be published next year.
