TRAVELLING TO MELA THE GREEN WAY: FREE KANGAROO TICKETS!

15 August 2014

Do you want to make the most of the MELA weekend? Not sure on the best way to get there? We can help! The Sustrans Smarter Travel team will be at New Art Exchange on Saturday 30 August, 9am – 5pm, with info and advice about travelling to the different MELA activities. We will also be giving away free Kangaroo day tickets* to help you make the most of the weekend activities. The Kangaroo ticket can be used on all buses, trams and trains within the Nottingham Kangaroo boundary.

*We only have a limited number of kangaroo tickets so please come early to avoid disappointment.

This activity is being delivered as part of the Nottingham Urban Area's successful Local Sustainable Transport Fund programme helping to establish Nottingham as an exemplar for integrated sustainable transport. For further details visit www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/lstfprojects.
