East Anglia Bus and Rail Door to Door Strategy


The DfT via Passenger Focus are gathering examples of both good and bad practice of interchange between bus and rail.

They are particularly keen to hear about instances where operators of both bus and rail have worked together to improve connections and where efforts to bring about a positive change have failed.

If you have any good examples please send them to Railfuture East Anglia at eastanglia at railfuture.org.uk and we will collate and forward them to Passenger Focus.

Through Train+Bus tickets. It is good that these exist, but there are examples where the bus add-on costs more that the much longer rail journey:
