A free guide giving the latest details of all the public transport schemes and providers operating in Fenland is now available.

The Fenland Transport Directory brings together information about bus and train operators, taxi companies, community car schemes, dial-a-ride and NHS Patient transport, including their contact details.

The guide has been compiled by the Fenland Transport and Access Group (TAG), which includes representatives from Fenland District Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, FACT, NHS Cambridgeshire, Care Network and the Fenland Strategic Partnership.

It was originally produced in 2012, when it was the first of its kind in Cambridgeshire.

It has now been fully updated to include advice on how to get bus and train information on your mobile phone, tablet or computer.

It provides details of electronic services such as the My Bus Trip app, Traintracker Text and National Rail Enquiries’ Train Alert service.

It also includes email and Twitter addresses for Fenland’s public transport providers.

Councillor Simon King, FDC’s Cabinet member responsible for transport and TAG’s chairman, said: “We are obviously particularly keen to help people who don’t have their own cars to see what other means of transport are available.

“But we also want to encourage car owners to make more use of public and community transport as an alternative to driving.

“There are many different services on offer but one of the big problems is that people don’t know who provides what. This updated directory contains details of all the operators and summaries of their services, as well as all the essential contact information.”

The Fenland Transport Directory is available at the Fenland@ your service shops and community hubs in Chatteris, March, Whittlesey and Wisbech, and online on FDC’s website at www.fenland.gov.uk/transport.

Copies will also be available soon in local libraries and GP surgeries.
