ABSTRACT
The government of Great Britain has given more than 15 million pounds to help set up innovative new bus travel schemes to tackle urban deprivation and social exclusion across England. The 32 projects benefiting from this grant money are the winners of the first Urban Bus Challenge, launched by the department of Transport, Local Government and the Regions in June 2001. The winning schemes were selected from a total of 146 projects submitted by English local authorities, passenger transport authorities and Transport for London. Several projects that received funding are those from West Yorkshire, Telford and Wrekin, Northumberland, and Plymouth. A total of 62 transport authorities bid for a total of 146 projects, costing 70 million pounds, in this year's competition.
