Sustainability Comes to Town
Friday 20th November, 2009

What’s stopping you from using the bus instead of the car?

A good number of road journeys could easily be taken by using public transport, but for many, questions about ticket cost, timetables and which services go where seem to get in the way of actually swapping the car for a bus.

And so, the council’s local transport and road safety team have joined up with Arrival buses to promote the use of sustainable travel. Everyone is invited, and the venue couldn’t be easier to get to.

Platt Bridge is more or less in the exact centre of the borough, and it is served by some 14 buses each hour. So look out for the Arriva bus parked up on Netto’s car park in the middle of Platt Bridge on Thursday 26 November 2009 from 10am – 4pm, and call in for a chat with the team.

Cllr David Molyneux is the council’s cabinet champion for the environment. He says: “Improvements have been made to bus infrastructure and services in Platt Bridge including modern shelters and level access bus stops. Please come along to find out about local transport services from the experts.”

As well as detailed public transport information, there will be a chance to see the next generation in buses, plus a competition to win free bus travel on Arriva bus services.
