Isn't it time to realise Busses cannot provide a universal service, even with a large subsidy. Dolmuch Shared-Cabs are an obvious solution for some aspects of our transport problems and can be provided limited start up money frm a sharply reduced bus subsidy. A central coodination service ocould also be provided for a new approach to a 'liberated' shared car/cab service that cld operate from door ro door for a fixed price per seat. In principle there is no reason to continue avoiding the financial and transport implications of the expensive rovision of 'free; parking.
