HOW DOES DIAL-A-BUS WORK?

Two dial-a-bus systems are examined, one at old Harlow and the other at Hampstead. Brief details are given of the mode of operation of the systems, the fare structure, ridership, and of passenger opinion. Results of a survey of passengers at Harlow suggest that journey-to-work users are in the minority and that use of the service by car-owning households has steadily risen since the service started. Cost, revenue and subsidies are discussed. The report concludes that both services are reliable and have attracted travellers from the private car. /TRRL/
