Important Railway Passenger Survey takes place this week
Tuesday, 14 October 2008
As first reported on the Hebden Bridge Web (see Hebweb News, 4th August) Hebden Bridge Rail Station has been selected as one of the 24 pilot stations to be included in a National Station Travel Pilot programme.
The idea begind these travel plans is to manage travel to reduce environmental impact. The aim is to improve station access and reduce traffic on the road network by promoting sustainable modes of travel such as walking, cycling, public transport, car clubs and car sharing as an alternative to single occupancy car travel.
The surveys will be taking place at Hebden Bridge station on the following dates:
Wednesday 15 October: 7am - 10am
Participants will be asked to complete a short interview survey - taking no more than 5 minutes - or they can fill out a short postcard survey and send back to a Freepost address.
All answers will be treated in the strictest confidence and will be used for statistical purposes only.
For further information on this project see www.stationtravelplans.com where it is possible to see details of the questions being asked. For those unable to take part at the rail station on the above dates, you can take part in the online survey.
The pilot at Hebden Bridge is being developed through a partnership lead by Metro with Northern Rail, Network Rail, Calderdale Council and Hebden Royd Town Council, as part of a national programme being co-ordinated by the Association of Train Operating Companies on behalf of the Department for Transport.
