Two significant changes in outlook were evident at this year's symposium on Advanced Transport Systems in British Cities, held at the University of Warwick from March 27 to 29. Most marked was the shift of emphasis away from the schemes for small four to six passenger cars on fine mesh networks which dominated previous gatherings of this kind to systems having much larger vehicles on coarse-mesh networks approximating more closely to those of conventional rapid transit. Compared with earlier conferences on advanced systems, there was a greatly increased readiness at Warwick this year to discuss steel wheel technology, particularly that of street tramways.
