49. Mr. Canavan

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what specific measures he intends to introduce to encourage people to travel by public transport. [54379]

Ms Glenda Jackson

Our recently published White Paper on the future of transport sets a framework for truly integrated public transport systems. Our programme of carefully targeted, proper funding, better interchange facilities, reliable services, simplified fares and increased access for all, aims to win more passengers onto public transport.
