This report is intended primarily for local authorities, and illustrates the demands which physical planning may have to satisfy with regard to bus transport. The report begins with a brief description of the present state and development of bus transport. The chapters on planning describe how the design and location of new urban areas can be adapted to bus route layout, and the advantages and drawbacks of bus traffic on different types of streets are also discussed. Detailed design of streets is considered, and examples are given of the design of intersections, bus stops and turning places. The chapter on laws and regulations includes current regulations for bus transport and the development controls which are relevant to the planning of urban bus traffic, etc. The report ends with an example of the procedure employed in planning a bus route network, which describes how alternative networks or routes can be compared and evaluated. This chapter also discusses how provision can be made for future bus routes when development plans are drawn up. /TRRL/
