Let's have a look at this, the 'article' claims "6 million" more tram passengers, right? (I prefer 'journeys' as to 'passengers' )

Quoted from this message

Wrong the actual figure IN THE ARTICLE is 5.8m. Let's not quibble.
YOU, claim, "9.8m 'new' tram journeys", where d'ya get that figure from?

Quoted from this message

Nottingham City Council report to the Greater Notting Light Rapid Transit Committee.
Then YOU, claim the, "Net INCREASE in public transport usage = 3.9m." on trams?
I think you should try again.

Quoted from this message

OK 9.8-5.8-0.1=3.9
"Proves" that "trams are taking cars off the roads", it does NOT.

Quoted from this message


What does it prove then?
I cannot prove that they have.

Quoted from this message

the most sensible thing you've yet said.
OH! And yes, I am the same Bill as in the NEP, why are mentioning the "law of libel"?

Quoted from this message

I see the NEP have followed this sites lead and pulled your potentially lebellous posts.

Why quibble?
Read the headline.

www.thisisnottingham...

Pay attention to:
Now the tram's effectiveness in drawing in drivers, rather than bus or train passengers, has been questioned.

Quoted from this message



And:
But, almost three years after its launch, there remains no clear estimate for how many car drivers the tram has encouraged to switch to public transport.

Quoted from this message

So: The article "proves that the tram has taken cars off the road" does it??

As for:
I see the NEP have followed this sites lead and pulled your potentially lebellous posts.

Quoted from this message

Look up 'libel', I was speaking the truth = no libellous remarks made.

Answer what?

If you can't comprehend simple maths Bill then may I suggest that you enrol on an Adult education class or listen to the teacher a bit more if you're still at school.

This posting has been hidden during moderation because it broke the House Rules in some way.
      

Message 87 - posted by BasfordBill, Jan 22, 2007

And now for the 'biscuit taker':

A new Local Transport Plan for the city will look at how to boost bus passenger numbers.

Quoted from this message

<laugh>
Cutting tram services would be a good way to do this.

Really BasfordBill, rather than simply contradicting other people's posts, try to ARGUE your points with REASONING, be it mathematical or logical!

P-T, please be more specific, if by "other people's posts", you mean this:
A new Local Transport Plan for the city will look at how to boost bus passenger numbers.

Quoted from this message

?
It wasn't.

It came from the original 'article' in the NEP, where, the "Bus Services" were "Cut", to 'boost tram passenger numbers', my post was a sarcastic response to that idea.

All you have to do is observe the use of the Park and Ride sites of the Car Parks on the Tram route. That tells you who is using the Tram instead of choking up the City Centre. Got it?

The good news is that since the tram public transport usage is up. Once we get a congestion charge in place it will increase further and those who choose to drive and pay the charge will get value for money as they will be able to travel quicker. Oppose the congestion charge only if you value your time at less that 50p per hour.
