The components discussed are the ambulance services, social service transport, education transport and voluntary transport. Works' buses are excluded. The paper shows that tertiary public transport is a small, but significant part of public transport, investigates planning methodology and discusses the practical role of tertiary services in county public transport plans. Although the relative number of trips by tertiary public transport is low, it attracts high levels of public expenditure and can offer large benefits to people who have no alternative means of transport. The author suggests that its efficiency could be improved, and that better integration and coordination with public transport as a whole could be achieved. Results from several experimental schemes are examined, and suggestions are made for future research. (TRRL)
