STOCKPORT is planning a free shuttle bus around town to try to ease congestion and encourage more people to use public transport
The borough council has made the shuttle bus a key transport priority for 2007, as the main shopping area in the town is set to grow by up to a third over the next decade. It plans to run the service from the summer.
[By which I think it means that under the new UDP, Tescos and the ex-IKEA proposal site are to be reclassified as being part of the town centre.
