The Friends of Glossop Station have embarked on a new initiative to encourage wider use of local bus networks as well as train connections in the Glossopdale area.
As a result of the project, an A1 map is now displayed at Glossop Station showing, in diagrammatic form, all the bus routes in and around Glossop, as well as service frequencies and local attractions, to promote sustainable travel to the area.
The map has been designed by Paul Marsh, whose work is already known to regular travellers through Glossop as the creator of the engaging Poetry Platform displays.
Neil Williams of the Friends of Glossop Station said: “This is the first time that such a map has been available and there has been lots of positive feedback. People have commented that it has made them aware of new routes, such as the recently established Sunday services to Castleton and Sheffield. The High Peak & Hope Valley CRP are also delighted with the concept and considering the potential for similar maps in the High Peak area.
“As all bus services arrive and depart from stops close to the station, we hope the new map will go a long way in promoting the use of onward public transport links.”
