This work was part of a response to the increasing problems of transport in Greater London.

For many the bus is the most important form of transport. It has also been the most neglected in terms of investment, planning and legislation. I wanted to show a passenger's view of the bus and the kind of people who use it.

I like to travel by bus - so long as I'm not in a hurry. Its great attraction is my fellow passengers. We are often crowded together with nothing more to do than stare out of the window or examine each other, carefully avoiding eye-contact. It is a curious mix of intimate distance and separate being, public space and private identities.

Parts of this work were produced for an exhibition 'Transport in the City' by London Documentary Photographers, shown at the Museum of London in 1992.
