Highest Annual Scheduled Bus Passenger Numbers in over 20 years

Wednesday 11 January 2017

A total of 1,653,728 people travelled on scheduled bus services during 2016, representing an increase of 146,927 passengers when compared with 2015.

This represents a growth in passenger numbers of 9.75% as compared with 2015 and is the highest number of passengers recorded since data was first collected in this format in 1996.

Encouragingly, the increase has been spread across the whole year meaning that the majority of additional users are likely to be regular users and resident in the Island.  With the exception of January 2016, where there was a small decrease in passengers of 1.5%, the increases have ranged been between 7,000 and 30,000 passengers per month.

There are a number of factors that have contributed to this very encouraging position; including:

President of the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure Deputy Barry Brehaut said 'The overall increase in passenger numbers is extremely encouraging and easily surpasses the previous record of 1,607,017 set in 2010.'
