In reviewing the relative merits of bus and rail systems, Hensher (Road and Transport Research, 1999) broadly favoured the bus. The present writer supports this specific conclusion, but even more important is Hensher's emphasis on objective criteria for transport decisions. Suggestions are made in the present paper for how a degree course in transport could emphasise rational decision-making, and examples of technological, operational, political, economic and organisational issues are listed.
