  • Big buses stable at 2,809 for the rolling year to February
  • 1,082 coaches to January, on par with the annual average for the four years to 2006
  • Minibuses, at 4,600 for the rolling year to January continue their downward slide.

‘Two months into 2007 and big bus and coach registrations are holding just below most recent annual levels.’ said Christopher Macgowan, SMMT chief executive. ‘The growth we saw in 2006 has eased but we expect stability in 2007. A few erratic months lie ahead as coach registrations were especially strong in April 2006 and big buses over 8.5t gvw also saw a strong period to September. Minibus registrations continue to slide.’
