A LABOUR COUNCIL WILL

work with our communities to map local transport needs now and plan how to provide a transport system that works, and is accessible to all, for the short and long term.

  • Start trials of affordable and accessible “hopper bus” services linking Canterbury East and Canterbury West stations, via the city centre and St Dunstan’s, within one year.

  • Immediately work with KCC to draw-up a hub-based, integrated transport system for the district to include a publicly-owned bus system at the service of all residents.

  • Do everything in our legal power to cancel the unnecessary Station Road West multi-story car park project and earmark its £9 million budget for future transport integration projects.

  • Complete and promote walking and cycling routes across the city, interlinking them with established long-distance cycle paths to London, Dover and Whitstable.

  • Take full advantage of government grants and other funding to maximise the number of electric vehicle charging points across the district.

  • Develop plans to electrify our buses, notably the Triangle route between Herne Bay, Whitstable and Canterbury.
  • Consult on a new proposal for the Labour Councillor-initiated Whitstable Park and Ride site and deliver the project as soon as possible.
  • Consult with our local communities in Herne Bay, Whitstable and Canterbury on how traffic should be managed and public transport provided.
  • Lead consultation and research with existing charities, communities and organisations, into fully accessible ‘drop on and off’ community transport schemes for rural areas.
