New group planned for city buses
BBC News: 23 July 2007
Public transport in Bristol could come under the scrutiny of a newly-created body, councillors say.
On Tuesday the council votes on a motion to set up a new strategic transport authority for the Greater Bristol area.
All political parties are expected to vote for the motion, proposed by Richard Eddy, Conservative Leader.
Bristol Civic Society said: "Bristol needs a real step change in powers over and funding for the local bus network."
Chris Gittins of Bristol Living Streets added: "With growing traffic congestion, rising oil prices and increasing climate change, small changes will not be enough."
