Thamesdown Transport Headquaters
Bus services for the Christmas and New Year period have been announced by Thamesdown Transport*. Full details are also available on the company’s brand new easier-to-use website at http://www.thamesdown-transport.co.uk/, which includes times of last buses on 24 & 31 December. Leaflets are also available from the Travel Shop in Fleming Way or customers can telephone the Helpline on 01793 428428.
 
“As usual we will not be running services on Christmas Day and Boxing Day,” explained David Burch, Operations Director of Thamesdown Transport. “We will operate normal Sunday hours for Sunday 27 December and for the Bank Holiday on Monday 28 December. I am pleased to say that we will be providing a business as usual service for those people who need to get work within normal business hours between Christmas and the New Year.”
 
The Travel Shop will be closed from 2pm on Thursday 24 to 9am on Tuesday 29 December and from 2.00pm on Thursday 31 December to 9.00am on Saturday 2 January.
 
Thamesdown’s new website, which went live this month, includes interactive maps showing bus routes. Customers can also check, from the comfort of their own homes or from the office, the estimated departure time for buses at all stops, by following a few simple steps on the website.
 
“Our website re-design project has been a key part of our plan to be as transparent and accessible as possible to our customers,” comments Paul Jenkins, Managing Director of Thamesdown. “We also want to make it easier for people in and around Swindon who do not usually use the bus to find out what services we offer and when they operate. The website will help you plan your route, even if this means changing buses. Customers can also find out about the range of discount passes we offer to help them get the best value by travelling with us.”
 
Thamesdown Transport is a signatory to the Swindon Business Charter and has used local suppliers to update its website. Elevation Creative Studios was responsible for the new design and SwindonWeb developed the coding for the site.
 
“Our design for the new Thamesdown website was a logical extension of the house style we have established for the company over the last two years,” said Sam Allen, Managing Director of Elevation Creative Studios. “The look and feel of the new site is now in keeping with the Thamesdown brand and will be familiar to regular bus users and will make it quick and simple for visitors to find the travel information they are looking for.”
 
Phil Poulton, Managing Director of SwindonWeb added: “SwindonWeb was delighted to be involved in this project to develop Thamesdown Transport’s website, which utilises the latest top-of-the-range technology and content management systems. Looking to the future, we now have the right platform to develop the sort of features which customers want today, such as new mobile internet applications.”
