The 2007 Railways White Paper asked the rail industry to work with all relevant stakeholder
groups to pilot Station Travel Plans and provide advice on whether the travel plan approach
could be beneficial to passengers.
ATOC agreed to lead the pilot programme, and following the White Paper publication, set about working with stakeholders to deliver it. ATOC convened a National Steering Group for Station Travel Plans to drive the initiative forward and provide a more coordinated approach.
At the outset of the programme, the National Steering Group agreed a clear four-year project
plan, summarised below.
