ABSTRACT
The author of this article suggests possible solutions to the public transportation problems in Great Britain, as of December 2000. The proposed solutions center on greater use of public transport, heavy rail, Light Rapid Transit, buses, plus exhortations to walk and use the bicycle. The author then discusses the limitations of the proposed solutions. He believes that the most effective way to reduce road traffic is to provide off-road alternatives. The underground option has severe limitations such as expensive engineering and major disruption during construction.The other option could be called 'the underground in the Air,' as it fulfills the same function without many of the disadvantages. The requirements of the system could be described as acceptable visual impact, minimal land take, quiet operation, non-polluting and sufficient capacity.
