Dan Calls For Better Integrated Transport Links

Central Suffolk and North Ipswich MP Dr Dan Poulter is calling for an investigation into better co-ordinated public transport services in rural areas.

This follows many complaints from residents that experience difficulties particularly when their journey requires a change of bus or a connection between a bus and a train.

Dr Poulter said:

"A well integrated public transport system is essential in the day to day lives of many residents particularly those living in rural areas. I have received far too many complaints about delays and cancellations and it is often those that have no alternative but to use public transport such as young people and our elderly residents who are hardest hit. Problems frequently exist when people need to get more than one bus or train as part of their journey and relatively short distances become time consuming journeys due to long waiting times for connecting transport.

A well co-ordinated system is essential for people reliant on public transport particularly those living in rural areas and I have written to County Councillor Graham Newman Suffolk County Council portfolio holder for transport and asked him to look into the best way of improving rural transport links".

I know she...
