ABSTRACT
This section of the periodical "Logistics and Transport Focus," presents letters to the editors that comment of transportation- and logistics-related issues, that were discussed in the periodical, as of December 2000. The first letter focused on the claims made by Barry Simpson that allowing priced use of bus lanes by other vehicles would not lead to delays to buses. The second letter focuses on the Ten-Year Transport Plan of the government of Great Britain. The author believes that the plan relies heavily on three principles. These are widening choice of means of travel, increased mobility and, for implementing policies, partnership. If these three principles are not defined more precisely than they have been so far, there is a risk that objectives such as those about improving accessibility, reducing traffic congestion and protecting the environment will fail to be achieved.
