This is the second edition of the County Council's Pt Plan, and is arranged as follows: part 1 - needs: present and future. This covers road passenger transport, school and rail transport, ferries, and the consultation process. Part 2 - problems. These are issues concerning all types of transport affecting the county as a whole and certain areas in particular. Part 3 - objectives. This part presents the overall strategy and future role of public transport. Part 4 - policies. These concern the various transport modes, their compatibility with broader transportation policies, and the need for flexibility. Information on the financing of road, rail and school transport is presented, together with the possible rationalisation of some services. The infrastructure of the transport system is considered, e.g passenger interchanges and bus shelters. The implementation of the public transport policy is covered in part 5. This includes annual expenditure and the financial programme for 1980-85. Details are given of the county policy towards individual operators such as British rail and London transport. The section concludes by considering transport within the district council areas and those of the neighbouring county councils. Travel data is summarised in the appendices. /TRRL/
