ABSTRACT
The University of Leeds and consultants, with the support of the railway industry, have joined together to research the case for introducing a version of the Swiss Taktfahrplan system in Great Britain. Its main features are that all public transport operates as a cycle of services that repeats itself every hour throughout the day and on every day of the week, that express, regional and local services are related to each other at junctions in the best way possible way across the whole country, that planning is led by the principal railway authority but involves many other operators, together with bodies representing users. The aim of the research is to design a timetable for the national rail network in Great Britain, including associated bus services, that follows the principles adopted in Switzerland.
