ABSTRACT
Great Britain's Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions has commissioned W.S. Atkins to identify best practice in promoting bus use for journeys to school. The nine-month study will consider schemes involving dedicated school buses and local buses used for school transport in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It will identify successful initiatives and explore how barriers to increasing bus use can be overcome within the existing statutory framework. Increasing bus use is an essential part of the drive to reduce reliance on the private car among school children. There are also child development, health and environmental benefits to be gained by travelling by public transport.
