Bus policy 'ignores 25% of population'

A QUARTER of England's population is being ignored in the Government's attempts to persuade people out of their cars and onto buses, a conference will be told today (Thursday).

Association of Transport Co-ordinating Officers chairman Brian Welch will claim that proposals set out in the Integrated Transport daughter document on buses will not work in small to medium size towns with populations of between 10,000 and 100,000.

Speaking to NCE on Monday, Welch claimed the Government's Quality Partnerships between local authorities and bus operators would fall flat in these towns.
