  • We like to think that in a deregulated provincial environment, bus services are free from political control. It’s tendered rather than commercial services that are influenced by the political will. Omnibuses
  • A chum from Brum telephones, expressing concern about inconsistency of public transport information in the West Midlands. Shock horror! Can it be true? Public Transport Experience
  • A look at towns and cities that have all had municipal fleets in past years. First up is Newport which still has a council-owned bus company, one of only ten left in Wales and England Transport Illustrated
  • Occasionally, I stand waiting with a group of other hopefuls at a particular town centre bus stop. It sees frequent buses. It’s off a very awkward junction and it’s quite tight for bus drivers to swing their 40ft single decks round to the stop. In fact, it’s impossible. Drivers always overrun. Omnibuses
