Hertfordshire County Council is encouraging Hatfield residents to utilise buses


Hertfordshire County Council is encouraging Hatfield residents and workers to ditch their cars and catch the bus.

The council earlier this week launched a campaign to increase passenger numbers on two bus routes, and are hoping it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support economic growth and improve transport opportunities.

Residents are being encouraged to use the 600 and 607 buses to travel between Hatfield station and the business park, and in doing so tackle congestion in the area.
The initiative has received support from the Travel Forum for Hatfield Business Park, which is made up of local employers. Campaign activity will include promotion at the newly redeveloped Hatfield railway station, electronic signage at bus stops and information distributed to business park employees.

Daniel Pagella of Goodman, which owns the business park, said: “We fully endorse this campaign to encourage Hatfield Business Park’s 14,000 employees to make use of the fast access to Hatfield train station that’s offered by Uno Bus.

“It’s a great service that’s become less well used in recent years. We’re very pleased to see it being promoted and hope it will encourage more people out of their cars.”
