Not a great green day

First published in Opinion

RAIL fares are set to rise by 3.5% from January next year. That’s bad news for train passengers.

Plans for a £2m bike rental system in the New Forest have been rejected. That’s bad news for cyclists.

Yesterday wasn’t a great day for those who want greener forms of transport and less private cars on the road.

If the powers that be are committed to encouraging more people to use public transport and also get on their bikes, then more carrot less stick is the answer.
