QUOTE:
Loss of tax revenue has been included in the calculation as specified by WebTAG, with the following assumptions made:
Transfers from car provide a reduction on VAT and fuel duty proportionate to vehicle kms removed;
Transfers from bus provide no taxation changes (bus users pay no VAT on fares); and
Generated demand gives rise to a loss in VAT from spending diverted to travel from other expenditure.

Tucked away in section 5.2.8 of the full report, tucked and re-tucked and well camouflaged on the ESCC website:
