The Government continues to work closely with representatives of the coach sector to understand the challenges facing the coach sector and how these can be addressed.

Where appropriate, the Department for Transport has sought and/or considered information and data from representatives of the coach sector to inform its approach. For example, the Department invited operators of scheduled services to submit data regarding planned service levels over Christmas in order to develop a £3 million Christmas support package. The Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT) also provides frequent data on the wider coach sector to the Department, which is used to inform policy decisions.
