General Details

Encouraging people to consider alternative means of transport to the car. If only a small percentage of journeys were transferred to public transport, the effect on the environment would be noticeable.

Producing comprehensive and impartial journey planning information in various forms ranging from:

  • journey planning on our website
  • providing data to Traveline

Suffolkonboard sponsor a number of bus services that would not be viable commercially. These concentrate on Sundays, evenings and travelling to work from the more remote rural locations. These services could help reduce social exclusion.

We provide financial contributions and operational support for a number of accessible transport schemes. This also covers creating opportunities and awareness of the needs of the disabled when it comes to access and use of public transport. Eligible older and disabled people are entitled to free off-peak travel on local buses anywhere in England.

We work closely with bus operators to develop "Quality Partnerships". This has led to such schemes as:

  • real time passenger information - improving the information passengers receive at bus stops
  • bus punctuality improvement partnership - to improve reliability and punctuality of bus services
  • "Superoutes" for buses,
  • bikes on trains
