“Give up your car and get free bus pass, transport campaigners say”

“Drivers should get free bus passes if they agree to take a car off the road, campaigners say.

The Campaign for Better Transport says the idea could reverse the trend of declining bus use and help take polluting diesel and petrol cars off our streets.

The idea comes in a “manifesto” – The Future of the Bus – which has gone to the government as part of a national strategy to re-invest in Britain’s most popular form of public transport.

Bus services provide the “backbone” of the local public transport network, but savage cuts are leading to a reduction in bus use and services have shrunk every year for a decade. …”

  1. don’t think there’s much mileage in this 🙂  the bus service in devon is not sufficient for most drivers, and then to be fair everyone would have to be entitled to free passes, including people who use them anyway and people who have already given up cars. So if a policy to make transport free was introduced, it would be a simpler method of reducing car journeys and emissions.
