A SCHEME to hire coaches to bring commuters from Kent to London has been announced by the North East Kent Travellers Association. This is to beat the 15 per cent increase in rail fares from September 7.
It is estimated that many commuters could save up to E200 per year travelling by coach. A spokesman from the Metropolitan Traffic Area said that a road service licence would be necessary if such a service were to be run. As it would be in direct competition with both British Rail and NBC express services it seems unlikely that this scheme will get off the ground.
