Viable alternatives to car travel

Evidence suggests that public transport has the potential to replace 21% of existing car journeys in urban areas around the UK. So what's stopping people from hopping on to buses and trains?

A better public transport system will not only offer smarter travel choices, it will also enable people to leave their car behind and travel more sustainably - and be more inclusive for those who can not afford to run a car. This is why Bedford Borough Council in concert with Sustrans are pushing for more investment in affordable and reliable public transport.

 

Take it at your own pace

It can be intimidating when you start commuting alongside other travellers who have been doing it for years, but do not let a few "seasoned pros" put you off. Take your commute at your own pace. Time your practice run and make sure you add an extra ten minutes to get freshened up at work. If you know you are not in a rush you will be less inclined to try and compete with other travellers.

Start slow, commute a few times a week and work up to every day when you feel fit enough. It is better to enjoy the journey than to force yourself and then give up.

 

"Combined" Commuting

Cycling to your nearest train station and catching a train is a great way to combine all the benefits of cycling into a longer daily commute. Most trains allow you to take folding bikes on board as they are generally small enough to be stashed in the luggage racks. Some trains also accept full-size bikes, so check before forking out on a fold up bike. You could also buy a cheap second bike to keep locked up at the other end of your train journey.

Where is my Bus?

Bedford is served by a good network of bus services, with most places being connected by bus to the town centre. Bus real time information removes the uncertainty a passenger may feel when waiting at the bus stop, by providing accurate information about the arrival of services at their stop. This encourages passengers to make an informed and smart choice of travelling by public transport.

You can get live bus info for any bus stop in the Borough area via the online facility below:

A New Bus Station for Bedford

Planning permission for the £8.8million regeneration of Bedford Bus Station was granted in June 2013. Work to demolish and replace the bus station building itself is now underway. This means there are changes to some bus services as well as disabled parking and taxi provision.

This major regeneration, when completed, will significantly improve this vital gateway into Bedford town centre. All works are expected to be completed before Christmas 2014.
