Abstract

Sustainability and sustainable transport form the background to the evaluation of an electric bus operating in a small, historic town in the UK, which is a popular tourist destination. The town has a steady stream of tourists who come in to the city centre on diverse forms of transport to visit tourist attractions and attend the theatre. The interaction between the various vehicular and pedestrian traffic is chaotic. Associated problems are high levels of congestion and pollution. A survey was undertaken with residents, retailers and visitors to gather insights into different facets of the transport problems and to determine the acceptability and usefulness of an electric Park and Ride bus.
