Most companies operate one to three buses (exceptionally more), which are mainly leased. In addition, it is a sector with a very low margin. The combination of these factors means that lending to non-scheduled bus operators is extremely complex, often linked to the personal assets of non-scheduled bus operators.
All necessary information for applying, including the application form etc., are published on the website of the Ministry of Transport.
