Travel and Transport in East Suffolk
The eight Community Partnerships across East Suffolk have identified many dimensions to the transport priority, for example connectivity, green vehicles, walking and cycling, community transport and alternative forms of transport provision.  Today will focus on two of the most raised dimensions – rural transport and active and sustainable travel. Participants will be updated on the data and current activity and can also help shape the debate about the future of transport in East Suffolk.


09:30 – 11:00: Connecting Our Rural Communities

This session will include a snapshot of the current rural transport set up in East Suffolk, together with current thinking on its future. Participants will get an overview of passenger data and journey purposes along with examples of the specific challenges to operating transport services in East Suffolk – and hear examples of new and innovative ideas to address them. The session will conclude with a discussion to build on the outcomes of recent stakeholder engagement undertaken by Suffolk County Council to help shape future rural transport services in Suffolk.
Facilitated by:

  • Nick Khan, East Suffolk Council
  • Cllr Alexander Nicoll, Chair of the Local Government Association Public Transport Consortium
  • Andrew Summers, Transport East
  • Susan Davey and Kirsty Marjoram, Suffolk County Council.
