Abstract

Major problems exist in urban areas due to traffic congestion, environmental pollution and safety. Increasing road capacity and attempts to accommodate the car are no longer credible and heavy rail, light rapid transit and guided busways cannot offer a solution on their own. The bus is generally the most affordable and flexible solution to urban transport and even where other systems have been successfully introduced, continues to cater for the majority of public transport journeys. However to be a successful part of the urban transport solution the bus must offer a product which is attractive to the user. We believe this can be achieved through Quality Bus.
