Travel at Burnham Waters

Why use public transport, walk, or cycle?

Running a car is expensive. For many short and some longer journeys, taking the bus or train can work out to be cheaper and be less stressful than driving, especially when you consider the cost of filling your car with fuel and paying for parking.

One bus can take up to 50 cars off the road, which helps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, improve local air quality, road safety, and can also reduce congestion where you live.
