Think Travel

A one-stop travel information website has been launched by Somerset Council to support more local people to access public and community transport.

If you don’t own a car – or you want to leave it at home and travel more sustainably, Think Travel can help you with your transport options. Whether it’s getting to the doctors, shops, travelling to work, college, or school, or just into town to meet friends or family, the new travel planner shows you what’s available. It covers public transport, community transport, the Slinky demand responsive transport service and car sharing.

To start your search, all you need to do is enter your journey start point and destination in the planner and Think Travel will find the available options for you.

As well as information on train and bus services, there’s also a dedicated car sharing notice board you can sign up to, where offers or requests for car sharing journeys can be posted.

The aim is to grow this facility and encourage local car sharing networks to evolve.

Flood Online Reporting Tool   

The Flood and Water Management Team at Somerset Council are interested to know if your property in Somerset has been affected by flooding.

The Flood Online Reporting Tool (FORT) has been developed to report any type of flooding that may have affected your property in the past or future events.
