This is the second of the public transport plans which the County Council is required to prepare under the provisions of the Transport Act 1978. The report mentions the major changes in circumstances since the publication of the Public Transport Plan 1979/80: increase in the price of fuel and new transport bill which are likely to affect public transport demands. The existing public transport services are reviewed (bus, rail and express coach services, taxi, and private hire cars, education transport, works buses, social and welfare transport). The accessibility to the public transport network is discussed together with the concessionary and reduced fares schemes financed by district councils. Public transport policies are considered as regards their objectives, basic fabric exercise, rail services, experimental operations, publicity, developing areas, efficiency and reliability of bus and coach services, bus shelters, and coordination of public transport provision.
