London Buses - A Success Story for Public Transport

This paper discusses factors that led to the success of the London Buses program. Against a background of long-term decline, which continues in the deregulated environment outside of London, patronage of public transport in the capital stabilized during the 1990s and has grown in recent years. The paper briefly covers the background that led to the current position and sets out the details of the ambitious program for achieving a further change in the image and quality of bus services in London, over and above the substantial improvements made in recent years.
