Transport Forum: Aims & Activities

Message

The Transport Forum looks at the effectiveness of the public transport system in Wimbledon and the present drive towards a modernised and integrated transport system for the capital. Various aspects of air pollution, and problems surrounding local bus, train and Underground systems are regularly tackled with leading experts and executives appearing on the panels.

The Forum has worked with the police and education authority to help resolve problems of school-hours crowding at Wimbledon station and the need to integrate to the maximum bus/tram/train passes for schoolchildren. It has effectively expressed community concerns at dangerously placed street-side advertising hoardings in the town centre and at the present lack of wardens to monitor school crossings.
