751: A New Approach to Rural Public Transport
This paper is summarised from a report: A New Approach to Rural Public Transport by Mott MacDonald and Dr Corrine Mulley and commissioned by the Commission for Integrated Transport
Year of Publication2009
By using a range of transport types including taxis it should be possible to develop a more flexible and co-ordinated rural transport network that is more cost and environmentally efficient and meets rural people's needs better. There are some barriers that need to be resolved by local authorities and taxi firms including licensing and types of public subsidy. There should be a large-scale demonstration scheme to evaluate the costs and benefits.
