ABSTRACT
The aim of this article is to present ways in which the current level of funding could be spent more effectively, in order to have the most dramatic overall effect on the problems encountered through the low usage of public transport in Great Britain. The author believes that the biggest focus should be on those living in the urban areas. The author first compared the transportation systems used in the country with those used in other European countries. The author believes that it is important to use zero tolerance on those breaching bus lanes rules. There is also a need to pedestrianize an area within the inner circle bus routes. The bicycle lanes in the country should also be improved in order to contribute to the reduction of traffic congestion. Discussed also in this article are the improvement of traffic calming schemes. Recommendations were also made on car usage taxation.
