  • 2,868 big buses in the rolling year to January 2007 give a stable performance
  • 1,072 coaches for the rolling year, close to the four year annual average
  • 4,689 minibuses for the rolling year, 31% down on the same period in the last two years.

‘2007 started on a stable note for the big bus and coach markets.’ said Christopher Macgowan, SMMT chief executive. ‘Registration growth slowed recently and we expect softer yet stable annual trends into 2007. Some key months lie ahead as year-on-year registration growth was very strong for coaches in April 2006 and for March to September for big buses. Since June 2006 minibuses have resumed their 15% a year decline.’
