Imagine a system where two buses an hour means a 30 minute interval. Where alternate buses take differing routes to eliminate the need for costly 'filler' routes. Whe...re all tickets can be used via any reasonable route (bus or train), on any operator. Where buses connect with trains at the stations. Where you can find times and fares online. Where you get good notice of any changes, and don't face an annual review and cutbacks. And where you don't have to pay more in fares for the bus or taxes either.
It can be done ... using the model already used (for example) in London where passenger numbers have grown, and making use of recent government and Department for Transport inspired developments. Please take a look at http://option247.uk
