      Bus-t up with the media

      A snippet:

      >The UK's bus system is running out of money and on the brink of collapse in
      some parts of
      >the country, according to reports this week.
      >
      >Up to two million bus services could be axed next year, say local government
      transport
      >managers. The effects would impact hundreds of thousands of people.
      >
      >Yet this news was buried away on the inside pages of newspapers and was well
      down the running orders on national TV and radio news bulletins.
      >
      >In media terms, says Professor David Begg of the government's Commission for
      Integrated Transport,buses are "a neglected form of transport" even
      though they carry four times as many passengers as trains.
