Park&Ride a delight

Just a quick reminder of a couple of fantastic low impact/high quality tranport links to add to your website, and on-site information...

To those of you have have not yet used it, the Park and Ride into Truro is a delight. It's clean, inexpensive, comfortable, friendly, reliable, popular with children (always a bonus!)and whips you into the heart of Truro - much much easier for visitors who may not know their way round the one way system, or where the car parks are. And that's without noting the cracking carbon benefit!

And I have the say the huge billowing waves of wild flowers across the pick up site are a joy...worth going just for that! We at CoaST use it as individuals with our families, and for going into Truro for meetings. Perfect!

We say...congratulations to Cornwall Council for developing and running such a fantastic example of high quality carbon crunching public transport. Huzzah!

So - just make sure your visitors know it's there if they're going up to Truro from the west. They can't help but be impressed. The link is:

And: We were lucky enough to have Professor Harold Goodwin, of the International Centre for Responsible Tourism, down here with us last week, to chat to and visit some of our members, as well as speak at our birthday celebration. He was pretty much bowled over with the quality and diversity of what you guys are doing. Keep at it, all of you...your efforts are now REALLY being noticed! See what he says on his blog...!

He was also exceedingly impressed with the sleeper train...and encourages more businesses to promote it to encourage people out of their cars if possible, especially if they're whizzing down for a special weekend break away from it all - very intelligent use of time and carbon! (we have to agree - we use it to go up to meetings in London.) Check out his blog here... http://haroldgoodwin.blogware.com/blog/_archives/2009/6/12/4221871.html

So - a fantastic credit and acknowledgement to what you members are achieving on the ground; and two excellent high quality/low impact transport ideas to use, and promote, straight away. A good way to start the week!
