What is Transition Chesterfield doing?
Transition Chesterfield supports a better public transport system for Chesterfield.
Many people in Chesterfield do not have access to a car, and for those who do, travelling by car will be increasingly expensive. Public transport is a more sustainable transport option than private cars for longer distances or for those whose mobility is limited.
Transition Chesterfield have done the following in support of public transport:
• Objected to Derbyshire County Council’s 2011 cuts in bus services
• Called for an improved public transport interchange next to the train station
• Made submissions to support better bus access to the new leisure centre
Transition Chesterfield have produced a series of 6 leaflets of car-free walks in the Peak District for people who don’t have cars or who want to leave them at home.

If you are taking more than one bus it is often cheaper to use one of the many Rover Tickets available from different operators or the Derbyshire Wayfarer for use on buses (and trains) in Derbyshire.
