Travel & Tourism Centre

Consultation

The Council has to make significant savings over the next three years as a result of a reduction in funding from Central Government and rising costs, particularly support for older people with care needs. Like all areas the Council must look at reducing expenditure. These savings can be used to protect other essential Council services like care for the elderly.

The Travel and Tourism Centre located at Bedford Bus Station currently provides a range of travel and tourism related services including a high volume of train ticket sales.

It is proposed to discontinue services that are available from commercial operators including train and coach tickets and bus travel information and to focus on providing information about tourist attractions in Bedford Borough.  In order to reduce costs it is proposed to close the current Travel and Tourism Centre and deliver information mainly through self-service facilities at Council buildings or, potentially, other outlets.
