Abstract
This paper examines the demand for local bus services in England. The study is based on a\ud dynamic model relating per capita bus patronage to bus fares, income, and service level,\ud and is estimated using a combination of time-series and cross-section data for English\ud counties. The results indicate that patronage is relatively fare-sensitive, with a wide\ud variation in the elasticities.
