Plans to shake-up county transport
A NEW ticket-to-ride public transport plan is launched by Herefordshire Council this week, with a plea to: ‘Meet us halfway’.
The council hopes to have its ‘half’ ready for a trial run in April or May, targeting a term-time week to keep as many cars as possible out of traffic-choked Hereford city centre.
The plan integrates bus and mini-bus services countywide with a network of publicly-accessible sites like pub car-parks as pick-up points for main routes.
“We accept the plan presents a huge culture change, but it’s a huge culture change we have to make. All we ask is that the travelling public at least meets us halfway,” said Councillor Graham Powell, cabinet member for infrastructure.
