THE MISSING LINK. A REPORT ON BUS-RAIL INTERCHANGE FACILITIES

This report presents an overall picture of the need for better coordination between bus and rail services in Britain. The results of a survey of bus/rail interchange facilities at a national sample of railway stations in the UK are analysed. Apart from some purpose-built integrated interchanges, the survey shows the quality of information and facilities to be poor. It is suggested that some low-cost improvements could be made in the absence of finance for large schemes. Better presentation of information on services to places not served by rail is necessary, and a number of centres for such information are suggested. Rail replacement bus services are considered in general with such services in two particular areas being discussed in some detail.
