Park and Ride – Why it is a Failure

Recently a news item indicated that only about 5 people make use of the park and ride van servies. This is probably due to lack of proper advertisements, Many people I speak to did not even know that such a scheme existed have alone about the whereabouts of the parking space or about van services available.

 Since the traffic congestion is a serious problem, much more vigorous advertising of this plan is essential. Detailed information of the routes of van services available, the parking spaces, the security for the cars and the profits of sharing in this plan – for the person concerned as well as the person concerned as well as for the county – all must be given positive highlighting. Those who loose hours just sitting in the car drumming their fingers surely will take advantage of this scheme if it is presented attractively.

 Over to you, the traffic department!
