The material listed in this bibliography is a selection of the books and articles relating to buses in urban areas available in the headquarters library of the departments of environment and transport. It has been arranged in seven main sections which are then sub-divided into (I) books, pamphlets and conference reports; (II) articles; (III) other countries. Publications since 1970 have been included but the emphasis throughout is on material published since 1974. The main sections are as follows: (a) DOE publications, includes official and non-official material published by the department since 1970, DOE circulars, and a selection of the reports and supplementary reports produced by the departments' transport and Road Research Laboratory (TRRL). (b) urban transport: policy and research, includes general works on urban transport policy with particular reference to buses, and to documents dealing with modes of travel within the city. (C) management and operation of bus services, is divided into eleven parts. Part (I) relates to overall bus operation and management; parts (ii)-(x) deal with specific aspects, and part (xi) includes some miscellaneous references. (D) and (e) are concerned respectively with theoretical models used in planning of bus services and technical advances being discussed but not yet incorporated into bus management and operational practice.
