THE BRADFORD BUS STUDY. 1. PROPOSALS AND PROGRESS

Arising from the decision many years ago to build a transport interchange in Bradford, the Bradford bus study has been designed to fulfil a much wider need. The purpose of this article is to outline the basic form of the study and the progress up to the middle of 1974. A discussion of the background to the study design is given. From the outset it was considered that the planning of public transport should not be based solely upon the assumption of restraints on the use of cars. The study is being carried out in four parts; bus role study; bus costing study; bus routing study; and bus promotion study. The inter-relationship between these studies is shown and a description of their objectives and progress is given. By this detailed examination of the many facets of bus operations, costs and use, the study is expected to produce results useful not only to Bradford, but also to West Yorkshire and the nation. /TRRL/
