ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Hampshire and Dorset branch of the Institute of Logistics and Transport hosted a debate on the future of local transport in Great Britain. Chaired by Paul Clifton, the panel comprised Tony Ciaburro, Bert Morris and Barrie Hodson. Each speaker gave an initial address and there was a good degree of common ground. The solutions differed, however, as each speaker developed his own vision of the future. The need for better public transport was recognized, although it was accepted that the public would be unlikely to see car users to take buses as an alternative transport mode. Tony Ciaburro made the case for road charging, but Barrie Hodson felt that more innovative use of bus lanes would have a more helpful effect for freight carriers. Bert Morris spoke for many in voicing the opinion that the private car has had a liberating effect on the way the public live and work and that society must come to terms with their wish to retain the freedom to drive.
