Travel Survey

Survey about bus services and travel options in Northaw and Cuffley

Following reductions in the 242 bus route service the Parish Council and the Resident’s Association received a large number of complaints. It seems unlikely that WelHat will provide a subsidy for this service in the future. This made us think about how the Parish Council could help with the transport issues that have arisen subsequently.  This questionnaire has three aims:

  • Firstly, we’d like to know whether and how this has affected you
  • Secondly, we’d  like to share alternative transport options which we know about
  • Thirdly we would like to find out about alternative transport solutions you may be using

which we could share with others

So do take a minute to complete this questionnaire.  You can return it to the Parish Office at 7, Maynards Place, Cuffley, EN6 4JA. We will also be setting up an online version through a link on the Council website. All information will be confidential and anonymous.
