Expanded bus network

The general bus network would be considerably expanded as a result of the up-front funding that would come with congestion charging, as the list below shows.

Park & Ride bus

Although some cyclists will regard bus improvements as potentially unfavourable, the alternative would be a massive increase in cars instead. Also, some of these refer to Segregated busways which (as we understand it) would have the effect of taking away buses from streets like Milton Road, where space could be freed up for cycling. Furthermore, the availability of a much larger amount of money than previously means that there should be much less excuse for making such changes better designed (we think by moving verges and underlying services etc.).

The list in the County’s documentation [table 0.12] shows:
