If a public transport operator is deemed to have a monopoly they'll be forced to give up some routes e.g. Stagecoach in Preston.

Most places are only served by one "public transport" ie. Bus Operator, and that has always been the case. However, I said *land* transport, not public transport. EVERY bus route is competing against private transport (motorised or otherwise) and taxis; and some are competing with Rail. All these modes carry some kind of advantage over bus - whether financial, political, or social/media driven.
