Tourism bus or land train?
PUBLISHED: 16:00 27 August 2014
WESTON'S tourism bus has not had as many passengers as hoped, leading some councillors to ask for a land train instead.
Nick Page started a thread on Streetlife on the topic this week and he said a train ‘would probably need more sheltered carriages as it would leave passengers exposed’.
Maz W said she has ‘never seen the tourism bus’, which takes residents and visitors around the main attractions in the town.
The bus, which is run by Crosville, picks people up from the seafront and railway station and loops around Clarence Park, visiting the SeaQuarium, Grand Pier and the water park before travelling along the Boulevard and back to Princess Royal Square.
Inge F described the tourism bus as a ‘silly idea’ to begin with, and said: “Who decided we have enough sights to need one?”
Jose R agreed, and said: “I didn’t know we had one!”
Inge F also suggested that ‘a few more prominent signposts would be a better idea, particularly to the museum which is ‘hidden away and poorly advertised’.
