About this book

Introduction

Transport is now high on the political agenda as Labour in office attempts to redefine transport policy to meet environmental and social goals. Transport Policy in Britain explains who takes the decisions, how the organisations inside and outside government work, and what are the planning and financial frameworks within which politicians, officials, and interest groups operate?
