The idea of this direction in policy has implications for the changing nature of work, traveller information, interchange and public transport, freight distribution and the use of new technology. This volume also examines key areas of policy and regulation, which are developing as a result of the White Paper and the new Transport Acts. studies to discuss and reflect on these issues, and the state of transport policy in the UK within this new and developing policy framework. In doing so, the collection provides a comprehensive review of this vital policy area.
