* Big buses do better than expected, but with signs of change in June

* Big coaches at near record levels, but also with signs of change ahead

* Double deck bus numbers continue their strong growth


“June’s figures showed the first half of 2008 as the best start to bus and coach registrations for years, on the back of sales last year,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive.  “Manufacturers report some signs of slower sales earlier this year, which may show as a slow down in registrations in the coming months.  Helpfully, shifts in bus passengers may hold better prospects for the future.”
