  • Overall bus and coach volumes down 26.7% in the month and 21.4% for the rolling year to June.
  • Coach volumes down 17.7% in June and down 2.5% for the rolling year to June.
  • All big bus (>8.5T gvw) registrations rose 40% in June, but stayed firmly down, by 21% for the rolling year to June.

“Demand for heavy buses and coaches received a welcome boost as buyers invested in the latest fuel efficient technologies across heavy bus and coach, double-deck and minibus sectors,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT Chief Executive. “Despite this exceptional rise in registrations, underlying confidence remains weak with registration volumes typically 20% to 25% down of recent average volumes.”
