Transport 2000 search for worst linked train stations

Transport 2000 are searching for the UK’s worst linked train stations, by this we mean stations that are difficult to access without a car and therefore isolate many members of the community. We would like to hear from people about their experiences of their journey to the local train station. We want to send a strong message to the government, Network Rail, rail operators, local authorities and bus operators asking them to work together and improve access to our train stations.
Please see the e-flyer below outlining further information on the survey.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to fill out the survey

Vote your station as the “Weakest Link”! Is your local railway station difficult to get to?
Well now is your chance to name and shame that station! Transport 2000 is running a nationwide competition to find out which stations are difficult to access by bike, foot, bus, or by people using a walking aid or wheelchair. In a bid to highlight the need for high level station integration with cycling, walking, buses and taxis as a means of reducing car dependency, the competition will highlight some of the worst integrated stations in the country and highlight some of the exceptional ones as well.

It takes just five minutes to fill in the survey on-line and you will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win travel vouchers of your choice.
The Weakest Link survey can be completed online:
People wishing a paper copy can request one from Tara Melton at Transport 2000; 020 7613 7716
The competition runs until 8 August and results will be announced 24 August on Transport 2000’s website.
