Our Aims and Campaigns

Our ‘top level’ aims are to:

  • UPHOLD QUALITY: Watch for, and challenge, any lowering of standards.

  • BUILD-IN SUSTAINABILITY: To put the line on a more sustainable footing, both operationally and environmentally, thus ensuring its long term prosperity and ‘value for money’ as a public transport facility.
