No, when I've had petrol put up to a tenner a gallon and road tax to nearer 500 quid, your corsa will no longer be as cheap as it is and taking the bus will be significantly more cost effective. The National Conegstion Charge (which will make driving into Birmingham a castly excercise) shoudl solve the matter once and for all.
Oh contre, the greedy private, remember there is no "public", transport companies will jack up prices in line with your increase in charges.
Now, Sheffield had a great genuinely public transport system, all fares were 5 pence. Auntie maggies simple minded capitalism put paid to that, one month later bus use had gone down by 20% 3 months later down by 50% with a comeasurate increase in car use.
£500.00 road tax, choose your wall comrade.
