This circular describes the arrangements for the Transport Supplementary Grant (TSG) with reference to the government policy for transport since the publication of the white paper (CMMD 6836). Counties, who were given general guidance, formed their own views on the appropriate level of expenditure. Advice is given on the bus and underground programmes, also local British rail services. The use of market analysis to review fares and services is discussed. Bus priorities and staggered working hours are considered. Proposals involving new rail investment require discussions with the railway board and regional offices. Environmental aspects of local roads and traffic management are discussed. Better facilities should be provided for cyclists wherever possible. Advice is given on policies affecting the operation of car parking facilities. Freight transport is mentioned, emphasising the environmental advantages of rail carriage, and road safety is discussed. An index for the appropriate parts of the earlier circular is included in an annex. /TRRL/
