“In this study David rightly highlights the crisis which has developed in bus service reliability across the UK, and suggests a new and urgent need to make our buses quicker and more reliable to make our cities work better. The air quality effects of congestion are getting much airtime just now – the economic effects are as obvious but left unsaid for the most part. This study seeks to put that right.” – Sir Peter Hendy CBE
