  • Total bus and coach registrations grew 0.8% in November against a 2.6% fall in the year-to-date.
  • Coach registrations rose 6.5% in the month, in contrast to the 13.3% decline in the purpose-built bus market.
  • Stronger month for converted buses, with registrations up 14.1%.

“Another month of growth for coaches offset the decline in purpose-built bus registrations, leading to a level overall market,” said Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive. “This replicates the sector’s performance in the year so far, as continually growing demand for coaches contrasts with a more subdued bus market.”
