Public transport is a great alternative to travelling by car and offers additional benefits too, such as freeing up time to prepare for a work meeting, to catch up on emails, to read a book, listen to music or watch your favourite TV shows.
There are more than 270 local bus services from Chelmsford, so you can be chauffeured in, out and across Chelmsford easily, whilst reducing your carbon footprint. There are designated bus lanes to help speed up your journey during busy times, and of course you don’t need to worry about car insurance or paying for parking either.
Trains offer a low carbon form of transport when compared to travelling by car, and they can improve our local air quality and reduce road congestion too. There are three train stations in the borough. The busiest, is located in Chelmsford’s City Centre, on Duke Street. The other two are located in Battlesbridge on Hawkhill, and South Woodham Ferrers on Hullbridge Road. All of which, are usually no more than a 50-minute journey to and from London. A fourth railway station located at Beaulieu , is due to be built by 2026. This will be the first railway station to be built on the Great Eastern mainline for over 100 years.
