Recent travel trends include lower patronage growth and in some cases reduced patronage on public transport and some increases in road traffic in London.

A range of factors are likely to be contributing to this. These include wider economic trends, specific issues relating to the operation of the bus network over the last year and other factors, such as prolonged industrial disputes on national rail.
