Nene Park Trust is hoping to improve Park accessibility for those living on the other side of Peterborough and offer a sustainable travel option for all.

This summer holiday bus service will be closely evaluated throughout the summer to see whether a permanent bus service into the Park is a viable option going forward.

Jen Marscheider, Head of Marketing for Nene Park Trust, said: “We are really pleased we are able to offer this bus service to our Park visitors this summer.

"Please spread the word far and wide about ‘Your Community Greenbus’ so we can make sure it’s well used and we can continue to offer sustainable and accessible travel options to our Park visitors after the summer too.”
