a) Survey and gathering information.
b) Promotion of existing service
c) Evaluation of options for future service
d) Campaigning
e) Organisation of the group to make it as effective as possible and to work with (or within) other groups as appropriate.

Kiss and ride and other publicity / web site will proceed. There were discussions as to the formalisation of the group in some way, but no decisions were reached along those lines and no further meetings planned. A request was made for the various groups to work in conjunction with each other so that a single contact point might be established with (for example) county hall.
