Visitor Service Development
The Visitor Services Project kick-started service developments to provide high quality travel options suitable for international visitors. This was done through grant aiding tours in the four project corridors and providing funding to operators to start new or enhanced quality transfer bus or boat services and tours. The aim was for the routes to become self-sustaining in 2016 and beyond, offering enhanced travel opportunities without the need for a car.
Under the project three new or improved bus services were introduced, three new coach tours were introduced and a new lake cruise introduced. In total 13,575 passengers carried on See More supported services during summer 2015 and, based on on-service monitoring, 99% of passengers rated the services as ‘good’ or ‘very good’.
