PLANNING TO MAINTAIN VIABILITY . PLANNING FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORT - A DYING ART? TWENTY-FIRST ANNUAL PUBLIC TRNASPORT SYMPOSIUM, HELD AT UNIVERSITY OF NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, MARCH 27-29 1990

This short paper looks at the role of planning in the bus industry as it was pre deregulation, and is now, when transport services are planned by local management with the aim of long term viability. Deregulation, the author suggests, has allowed managers to be in closer touch with their customers. He ends by looking at future trends, which might involve local wage agreements, local contract arrangements and the development of new methods for measuring social need. (TRRL)
