Some late alteration was necessary to the programme, as Ralph Roberts was indisposed and unable to speak. Tom Bridge and Andrew Jarvis spoke earlier than planned, and Chris Cheek gave an extra presentation after lunch entitled The Latest Bus Numbers, giving an overview on the latest DfT Bus Statistics.  See Chris Cheek’s presentation slides by following this link to the Passenger Transport Monitor web site.
