LOCAL CHOICE IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT. CONSULTATION PAPER

The report, issued as part of government policy as a consultation paper, discusses suggested changes in the organisation of transport services in Wales. Such changes would include the option that more transport decisions might be taken by local county councils with suitable financial arrangements. It is emphasised that a modern public transport system is needed to complement the economic and industrial growth measures now being taken in Wales to promote facilities for manufacturers, the tourist industry, and transport in rural areas. The report discusses the social and economic need for transport services in rural areas for journeys to work, school and shopping facilities as those without access to private transport seek greater mobility. A number of options are proposed, for which comments are invited, concerning local authority financing of bus and rail transport services. (TRRL)
