Chance for customers to have their say on c2c green fund
05 February 2020 •
We’re giving customers the opportunity to have their say on how our fund for environmental issues is spent over the next three years.
Last year we consulted on how best to use the new £375,000 Customer and Community Innovation Fund. This is intended for schemes that benefit passengers but are not part of c2c’s existing franchise plans. More than 50 nominations were received from MPs, local authorities, local charities and c2c customers. Environmentally-friendly schemes emerged as the most popular issue from this consultation.
Now it’s your chance to vote for your favourite scheme from our final shortlist:
- Supporting plastic-free c2c customers: c2c could spend the fund helping customers to reduce the amount of single-use plastic they consume. This will include providing public water-refill points at key stations, and offering reusable bottles and coffee cups for free to c2c customers
- Expanding electric vehicle charging points: c2c could expand its electric charging points infrastructure by providing more charge points for cars and/or electric bikes at more stations
- Providing greater support to cyclists: c2c could introduce a network of bike repair and maintenance equipment hubs at key stations to improve facilities for cyclists
Voting closes on Wednesday 12 February.
