The Long Distance Bus Transport industry is just one of the options travellers have to move around rural and regional areas. The industry also connects areas that otherwise have no public transport coverage. It also transports leisure travellers to far-flung locations in comfort and ease, and provides charter services for a range of purposes. The industry is at its most competitive when operating routes customised to leisure or charter travellers, and it is in these segments that many large private operators are innovating. Almost half of the industry serves the commuter market, operating routes that attract government subsidies.
Companies in this industry operate buses to transport passengers over regular routes and on regular schedules, mainly outside metropolitan areas or over long distances.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
