Keynsham is to get a share of a £10 million grant to help get commuters out of their cars and onto public transport.

The money will be invested in a variety of schemes, including the provision of more real-time displays at bus stops, and to encourage employees to either cycle in to work or use public transport.

Businesses can ask to have real-time bus information provided for their offices or to create a cycle hire scheme for staff.

As well as Keynsham, other commuter routes into Bath and Bristol will also be targeted, such as Cribbs Causeway and Midsomer Norton.

The money is being provided by the West of England Partnership, which represents Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

The announcement was made by Transport Minister Norman Baker yesterday

However, it is 'unlikely' that money will be invested into bus or cycle lanes, according to Julia Dean of the partnership
