Planning a journey in Somerset?

Think Travel can help

A new one-stop travel information website has been launched by Somerset County Council to support more local people to access public and community transport.

If you don’t own a car – or you want to leave it at home and travel more sustainably, Think Travel can help you with your transport options. Whether it’s getting to the doctors, shops, travelling to work, college, or school, or just into town to meet friends or family, the new travel planner shows you what’s available. It covers public transport, community transport, the Slinky demand responsive transport service and car sharing.

To start your search, all you need to do is enter your journey start point and destination in the planner and Think Travel will find the available options for you.

As well as information on train and bus services, there’s also a dedicated car sharing notice board you can sign up to, where offers or requests for car sharing journeys can be posted.

The aim is to grow this facility and encourage local car sharing networks to evolve.

Somerset County Council’s Lead Member for Travel and Digital Cllr Mike Rigby said: “Think Travel brings together all available information on travel options in the county for those not using their own car, whether you’re a student, older resident who relies on community or public transport, or if you just want to help a little bit towards protecting our environment. 

“It’s a really important tool in terms of supporting sustainable travel and hopefully it will play a part in growing car sharing communities across the county.

“Now more than ever, it’s vital we support alternatives to single private car use, while at the same time support residents who rely on public and community transport.

“I would encourage people to check out the service an see if Think Travel can help you.”
