ABSTRACT
An interview with FirstGroup chief executive Moir Lockhead regarding the bus industry in Great Britain. FirstGroup has been trying to change the bad image of buses in Great Britain, as well as of public transport in general. It would like to encourage more people to take public transportation. Technology can help the bus industry achieve consistency, besides improving the flow of information. Public transportation needs to become the preferred choice, and if it does, the other economic benefits will follow when the system is good enough.
