Transport Direct closes
Bus Users was dismayed to learn that the Department for Transport had decided to close its trailblazing website Transport Direct on 30 September.
Launched in 2004 the site was the very first journey planner to cover England, Scotland and Wales, and has since assisted with 160 million travel requests.
Stephen Morris, Deputy Chief Executive of Bus Users, said: "Transport Direct was an absolutely brilliant journey planner that's been invaluable to the travelling public. We'll be lost without it: literally."
