NEEDED: A MORE PROGRESSIVE, LESS DEFEATIST ATTITUDE TO PUBLIC PASSENGER TRANSPORT

The author suggests that the recent failings of public transport policy have been due to particular factors which will not necessarily persist. Factors considered include the slow delivery of buses, cheap petrol, a poor image and slow progress in urban rail programmes which have proved important in Europe. The author attacks proposals suggested in a previous article and puts forward his own ideas on how a smaller and more efficient bus fleet should be managed to stay within the government's reduced subsidy limits. /TRRL/
