To ask Her Majesty's Government how much new COVID-19 funding they have spent to date (1) in total, and (2) per passenger, on (a) roads, (b) rail, (c) bus, (d) coach, (e) light-rail, (f) walking, and (g) cycling.
Government’s new spending to date due to COVID-19 is £3.473 billion. This includes funding brought forward from 2020-21. £2.8 billion has been spent on rail franchised operators, £84 million on buses outside London and £42 million on walking and cycling. Light rail has been allocated £29 million. It is important to note that the spend on buses, walking and cycling only reflects spend to date, and significant further sums will be spent as bus services continue to ramp up and local authorities roll out active travel schemes.
Transport for London has received £547 million. Other funding, including roads and coaches, has come from existing budgets. Government does not hold data for COVID-19 funding per passenger.
