All on board for Hereford travel schemes

The Choose How You Move team is endeavouring to reduce congestion in Hereford city by providing residents with clear information about travel options such as bus services and cycle paths.

The Choose How You Move team from Herefordshire Council has been holding road shows at locations around Hereford city. Easily spotted by the accompanying balloon adorned bus from First, the team are engaging the public with details of cheaper and more sustainable travel around Hereford.

Children are able to pose in the bus driver’s seat for a photograph and then depart with a balloon, and members of the public are encouraged to enter the R U Ingenious competition by coming up with an idea for something fun to do on a bus. By doing this they stand the chance of winning great prizes including a Taste for Adventure ticket, granting admission to one person and five of their friends. Previous winner Peter James described it as "an excellent treat for our children and their friends."

There will be more road shows hosted by Choose How You Move this month. Choose How You Move asks the public to look out for the road shows in the city and to follow them on Twitter for more details. Their Twitter feed is: @ChooseHereford.
