This report summarizes the findings of the Huddersfield urban bus study. This major study of bus operations in Huddersfield was commissioned by West Yorkshire County Council and West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive, and was completed by LGORU in 1976. The study involved three main phases. First, a series of surveys was carried out, giving a comprehensive review of travel needs in the town and the role of the bus system in meeting those needs. Next, investigations were made and recommendations devised for immediate improvements to the bus network. Finally, studies were made of the likely effects of long-term trends and national and local policy over a longer time period. These three phases are reported fully in the three main volumes of the study report. Technical reports have also been produced covering specific aspects of the analysis. This report is set out in three chapters, which cover the three phases of the study and is a summary of the findings of the whole study. These chapters are followed by a brief summary of the most important conclusions and recommendations we have derived. /Author/TRRL/
