Revenues that are directly connected with transport contracts or concessions are either independent of (secured revenues, primarily concession fees) or dependent on (unsecured revenues, primarily revenues from fares) the number of passengers.

In the year under review, the order book declined in total. This was primarily due to the development in Mainland Europe (9 %) where future unsecured revenues have been impacted by the long-term impact of Covid-19 and lower volumes of contracts won. There has been tendency in many markets to defer competitions and extend existing contracts. In the United Kingdom, the UK Trains order book increased (+16 %) due to the CrossCountry direct award, partially offset by the UK Bus order book reduction (11 %) due to timing within the contract portfolio.
