£30,000 information centre to help city commuters
8:40am Tuesday 14th August 2012 in News
COMMUTERS and tourists in York are to get a travel boost with the opening of a new £30,000 information centre.
The facility, which was being unveiled today at York Station, will provide more up-to-date and accurate details on bus services as well as other visitor information.
Operated by York Pullman, it has been developed through funding which City of York Council secured from the Government’s Better Bus Area Fund earlier this year. It will be staffed every day and also act as a base for managing replacement rail services and co-ordinating shuttle buses during York Racecourse meetings.
Coun Dave Merrett , the authority’s cabinet member for transport, planning and sustainability, said: “This is an excellent example of how transport providers are working together to provide easier access to information for the 7.1 million visitors who travel to York every year and thousands of regular commuters, as well as local residents.”
