Transport meetings times - at good times for transport?

This campaign tip (no. 20) was published on Sunday, 20th January 2019
"We'll meet at 10 O'Clock". What a sensible time for a meeting and we've all seen / heard it so often. I'm quite used to those at [venue] ... all AOK except that our poor train service arrives from the very line we're talking about at the station just by the venue at 07:58 ... or 10:12.

May sound an obvious tip? But you would be amazed how often it's overlooked.

Pickup / drop-offs from the station / bus stop aren't a bad idea too ... as is letting people know when the meeting will be over.

Image - the extreme. Just a handful of trains each way per day here at Altnabraec and what you're doing there needs to be tailored to when you arrive and depart. No road to the station either - one of the most isolated stations in the UK

These pages are written by Graham Ellis of Melksham, Wiltshire. Overlapping a life in IT and IT training, with running a hotel and campaigning for improved public transport, Graham has never been quiet - though he's starting to wind down gently now. He no longer takes overnight guests and has stepped doen from the "Community Rail Officer" role which he accidentally aquired. So he now has more time to write pages such as these and to travel in the UK. He'll be delighted to speak with your group or take a look through your case or camapaign, but be alerted that his time is not limitless even now, and he still has to keep the wolf from the door.

What a difference a campaign makes!

It probably wouldn't have happened without a strong community campaign with which I have been involved. Most days through 2019 I'll be sharing a thought, an idea, a way of working or an experience.
