Coaches are often overlooked as an important mode of passenger transport.  Yet they carry significant numbers of inter-urban passengers, both competing with rail and on routes without rail services: surface access to airports is particularly important. Coaches make a significant contribution to commuter journeys in a number of cities, notably London. School transport, excursions, tours and private hire are traditional roles.  British deregulation from 1980 has been followed by other countries, notably France and Germany, with which parallels may be drawn.
Our speakers will address questions such as: How do coaches contribute in economic and social terms? Are coaches adequately appreciated by transport and urban planners? Should more infrastructure be provided for coaches, for example better stops and interchanges or priorities on motorways?
