The author reviews the state of passenger transport in Glasgow and describes improvements being made to bus, underground and rail services. The underground system is to be completely rebuilt and new 2 or 3 car trains at a 2 minute frequency brought into service. British Rail's central low level line which passes beneath the city is to be reopened and will link the north and south electric systems. Other alterations described include the elimination of through traffic from part of the city centre and a city centre circular bus service to link Glasgow's inter-city stations. Brief details are given of the work involved and the problems that have been encountered. /TRRL/
