Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Year of the Bus (YOTB) campaign is a cost neutral campaign to TfL. The total budget for the YOTB programme is £0.7 million, covered by sponsorship from external partners.  The expenditure to date is £0.6 million and all remaining budget is allocated.

Sitting alongside this is £750,000 funding for the London Transport Museum from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).  The HLF funding is for a bus restoration and four year commemoration of the First World War.
