Reference: UG561C

Objectives

The first live version of Transport Direct will be launched early in 2004. There will be many enhancements and new developments added to Transport Direct later in 2004, and through 2005. This is part of the latest phase of the Market Research programme that will inform these developments, to ensure that we are delivering the service that the public wants to see.

Description

The aim of this project is to inform Transport Direct with respect to its handling of the cost of car journeys, both for the motorist planning their car journey and for the individual wishing to compare the cost of a car journey with other travel alternatives. This will inform how we present this information in the Portal.
