October 2013 DfT Issues Guidance for 2014/15

DfT says:

The Department for Transport has published updated Guidance on reimbursement with a Calculator for the year 2014/15 for the National Bus Travel Concession in England. These are both available at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-on-reimbursing-bus-operators-for-concessionary-travel.

 

The updates are minor changes, including updating the CPI Index and the GDP deflator. The text changes to the guidance are available in a document showing track changes, on request. We intended to update the PTE-like TCA list (table 6.1 in the guidance) for 2014/15 but unfortunately the data collected in the 2011 Census, which would underpin the update, is not yet available. The ONS have published a release timetable naming the theme tables they plan to release before February 2014 – however, tables detailing car availability for people aged 50 and over by local authority area are not yet listed in the timetable. We will be in touch when this data becomes available.
