FENLANDER: New ‘all in one’ guide to Fenland transport is launched

A NEW “all in one” guide giving details of all the transport services available in Fenland was launched this week.

The Fenland Transport Directory brings together information about bus and train services, taxi companies, community car schemes, dial-a-ride and NHS Patient transport and includes contact details for all the providers.

The guide, which is free, has been compiled by the Fenland Transport and Access Group (TAG).

Councillor Kit Owen, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for transport and TAG’s chairman, said: “We believe this is the first guide of its kind in Cambridgeshire.

“We want to make it easier for everyone to find out what is available in Fenland. There are so many different services that at the moment it can be very hard for people to know where to go to get the information they need.

“This guide will help anyone who, for example, is without their car for a few days or has difficulties getting to hospital or doctors’ appointments or simply needs to get into town to go shopping.

“This is one simple information point that gathers together all the details they need to find out which service would suit them best.”
