This article reports that the Confederation of Passenger Transport, the bus industry body in Great Britain, has launched a manifesto which sets out the bus industry's view of how to achieve faster, more reliable services and improved information and integration. The key elements to achieve better buses are faster, more reliable bus services achieved through more bus priority measures, a joined-up approach to parking management and pricing, an increase in properly targeted bus-related public spending, new local targets for punctuality, a competition policy aimed at meeting passengers' needs, improved public transport information and increased bus-rail integration.
