Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

A "Pick-me-Up" bus service introduced in Harlow on Wednesday is the fifth Diala-Ride passenger transport system in Britain since it was first launched in Maidstone in 1972. Other services are now in operation in Eastbourne, Harrogate, and Carterton (Oxfordshire) and a number of other systems are under consideration elsewhere.

Ford Motor Co Ltd has said that it has received a flood of enquiries about the system following the formation earlier this year, of Transport Policy and Planning Committees in each county. These committees have funds available to assist the introduction of various forms of public transport in particular area.

The Harlow system is to run experimentally for two years under the joint sponsorship of the Department of the Environment, Harlow District Council, Harlow Development Corporation and Essex County Council.

The first Dial-a-Ride symposium to be held in Europe is to take place at Cranfield from September 9 to 12. It is being organized by Ford, the Transport and Road Research Laboratory and the Centre for Transport Studies Cranfield Institute of Technology.
