The author discusses structure plans, local plans, transport policies and programs (tpp's) and public transport plans (ptp's) in terms of their effectiveness in the improvement and development of public transport systems. He concludes that the preparation of lengthy, technical and complicated documents of the like of structure plans, transport policies and programmes and public transport plans are extremely expensive - far more costly than most people realise. Such documents are of very limited significance in producing a good transportation system. Effective planning is usually based on practical experience of implementation and not upon vast studies and costly public participation. Monies saved by the abandonment of unnecessary procedures could be used on practical experiments. (TRRL)
