Four passenger transport executives have been in existence since October 1969. The Paper starts by considering the aims of the Government with regard to urban public transport as outlined in the White Paper "Public transport and traffic" and the subsequent Transport Act 1968. It goes on to describe the experience of Tyneside Passenger Transport Exective to date in each of its main responsibilities. These are to operate those bus undertakings in the area which were formerly municipally owned, to integrate all public passenger transport in the area by means of operating and financial agreements with other bus companies and with British Railways, and to prepare and implement a plan for the future public transport system.
