Bike Rail guidance launched

A new publication to help promote combined cycling and rail schemes throughout the country has been jointly produced by the Department for Transport and the Countryside Agency. It provides advice and guidance for those promoting Bike and Rail schemes, highlighting a number of case studies where such initiatives have been successfully set up. Transport Minister, Charlotte Atkins, said: “I am delighted that guidance about combining cycling and rail journeys is being made available. Sixty per cent of the UK’s population live within a 15-minute cycle ride of a railway station so there is a huge potential for such journeys which has not yet been fully tapped. I am hopeful that the new guidance will help maximise this potential.”
