IS PLANNING FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORT DEAD? AN INDEPENDENT OPERATOR'S VIEWPOINT . PLANNING FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORT - A DYING ART? TWENTY-FIRST ANNUAL PUBLIC TRNASPORT SYMPOSIUM, HELD AT UNIVERSITY OF NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, MARCH 27-29 1990

The author puts his case for planning for profit as the proper course of public transport planning. He argues that road service licensing has prevented the development of an integrated transport system, and that successful planning fulfills expressed consumer needs. He ends with a list of 9 suggestions to local transport planners to ensure that their mileage becomes 100% commercially operable. For the covering abstract of the conference, see IRRD 833068.
