Table mountain to climb


Lewis Lesley states in his letter 'Candles in the wind' that London now accounts for over 60% of UK bus trips. A Public transport statistics bulletin - GB 2000 edition (Table 10) shows that London accounted for 30.5% of local bus and traditional tram service passenger journeys in Great Britain. If allowance is made for Northern Ireland (part of the UK but not Great Britain) then London's share must be under 30% not over 60%.
