Bus Service Operator Grant (BSOG)
Since receiving BSOG funding from Central Government in 2013/14, Lincolnshire County Council has devolved its BSOG funds to operators for supported services for which they used to claim BSOG directly from the Department for Transport. The level of funding is calculated on the same basis as that adopted by the DfT and seeks to maintain the same levels of supported service. Any new supported services will not automatically attract BSOG funding from Lincolnshire County Council.
Across Lincolnshire there are a wide range of bus stops and shelters, all of which provide an invaluable amenity to waiting bus passengers.
