Evolutionary Development of the Public Transport System 690124

Numerous conceptual and feasibility studies have been published for transportation systems involving revolutionary departures from established systems. Such proposals can be assessed properly by comparison not with systems existing today but only with such systems as they might be at an appropriate future date given the same environment and management as assumed for the novel system.
The public highway/free-ranging vehicle system is studied on the assumptions that it is operated as rewardingly as its limitations allow and that these limitations are extended continuously by the normal process of technical innovation.
It appears that the system is fully able to meet the needs of a country having a well-developed air transport system, and that further development of the existing system is advantageous compared to introduction of a novel system. The only radical change needed is the introduction of good management.
