Coachways vision

We are just completing a six month placement by Ben Clark from the Centre for Transport and Society at UWE in Bristol who has been reviewing the UK’s national and regional transport policy to see where the Coach currently fits into these plans. The briefest summary that coach is briefly mentioned in a nationally policy context but that this has now been converted into any concrete proposals or action. At the regional level the SW and SE regions do have some concrete plans but of course these institutions are now being phased out and being replaced by Local Enterprise Partnerships which have let to get started.

He also reviewed existing coach services along some identified corridors and then proposed new higher performance schedules for the routes based on the availability of new Coachway Interchanges close to the motorway network with onward local transport links to local urban areas. The full results are available from the Coachway Vision section of the Ideas in Transit wiki.
