Supplementary notes

ITSO is an organisation which sets a common technical standard for smart ticketing.
Excludes figures provided by a small number of operators whose vehicles were equipped but smartcards were not live as at 31 March.
Vehicles are assigned to areas based on the main area of operation of the operator to which they belong.
This statistic covers all operators who run local bus services, including those who also do non-local work (e.g. private hire, school contracts). Operators who do solely non-local work are excluded.
