Our public transport service should be of a standard that choosing NOT to own a car would not make you a second class citizen. With the cost of living rising and predicted to get progressively worse, investing capital into a fleet of cars for every adult in the family becomes increasingly unrealistic. An increase in public transport use would decrease the number of vehicles on the road which in itself would encourage more people to walk and cycle so helping to reduce the problems associated with inactivity which we are being told is becoming an increasingly problematic health issue.
