POLICIES FOR ROAD PASSENGER TRANSPORT - THE ROLE OF THE NATIONAL BUS COMPANY

The author puts forward ten principles of policy for public transport and goes on to consider bus transport in practice and the passenger transport market. Consideration is then given to land use, manpower, continuity of demand, public transport operators and local authorities, and the use of public money. The establishment of the national bus company (nbc) and its statutory duties are described and a brief account given of its structure. The role of the nbc is seen as providing an efficient service throughout England and Wales which can be developed creatively in response to the changing needs of the population. Details of relevant transport legislation are placed in appendices and the discussion which followed th paper is also included. /TRRL/
