RURAL MIDIBUS PROJECT. PHASE 1 MAY-DECEMBER 1976

This report deals with the introduction and initial operating results of a joint project by Eastern Counties Omnibus Company, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire county councils to test more flexible ways of providing rural public transport using a 25-seater 'midibus". Various types of service were provided for several villages lying between Peterborough, Oundle, Huntingdon and St. Ives. The report mentions the publicity given to the scheme and the results of surveys to ascertain the level of use. Changes made to the original services, due to public demand, are recorded. The use or non-use of the services, the value of the project for testing different methods of operation and types of demand and the advantages of using a "midibus" are considered in the conclusions of the report. /TRRL/
