Of all the industries in the UK, the British Bus and Coach sector has been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 outbreak and the impact of successive nationwide lockdown measures. The industry forms the backbone of the UK economy and has proved its resilience by facing its strongest challenges to date.

Based on an in-depth National Survey of 148 UK business owners on the challenges and opportunities facing the Bus and Coach sector today, this White Paper explores their perceptions of and attitudes towards the sector’s financial outlook, the role of finance as a growth accelerator and the latest investment trends. The findings are timely, relevant and highly revealing with regards to the very latest insights on:

  • The market outlook and business performance from the lens of the industry
  • The main operating restrictions facing the sector today
  • Ambitious plans to invest in new and used assets to drive future growth
  • The advanced technologies that operators are exploring currently
  • The pivotal role of asset finance in funding recovery and growth
  • Current attitudes concerning access to funding
  • The vital role of intermediaries
  • The five key attributes that operators are looking for most from their lending partners

Propel recognises that this is a critical time for the bus and coach sector as it emerges from the pandemic. With an in-depth working understanding of the sector and the assets involved, Propel’s dedicated specialist Bus and Coach finance team is working with operators nationwide to get Britain on the move by financing business-critical investments in vehicles, equipment and technology as a springboard to emergence and growth.
