Reagan signs bus reform bill

President Reagan signed the Bus Regulatory Reform Act of 1982 Monday, calling it ''a significant milestone'' and a boon for private enterprise.

The bill, which deregulates intercity busing, will remove ''closed door'' restrictions that prevent buses from picking up and letting off passengers at intermediate points.

The legislation also gradually increases the zone within which bus companies may raise or lower rates without approval from the Interstate Commerce Commission.
