The author emphasizes the importance of the role of the Passenger Transport Executive (PTE's) in the conurbations. Some of the objectives of a PTE are then outlined. A PTE should achieve complete co-ordination of all forms of passenger transport within an area. It can manipulate rail services and alter the balance between road and rail in order to optimise resources. Its duty is to provide a system which is a practical alternative to the private car and to which citizens will be attracted. The Greater Glasgow PTE is used as an example and details of committees involved given in appendices. The discussion which followed the paper is included. /TRRL/
