And this is despite all the old folk getting free travel during the period in question:
The new developments come after it was revealed that the number of bus journeys in West Yorkshire have reduced from 235 million in 1995-96 to an estimated 180 million in 2011-12.
Not a very impressive record for West Yorkshire's public transport people. But somehow we're now going to hand over all the transport cash - you know for roads and cars as well as the buses they've screwed up on - to this lovely bunch (now calling themselves the 'Integrated Transport Authority').
Tell me it's a joke?
