Formed in the 1960s as part of the successful campaign to save the Ipswich – Lowestoft rail line from closure, ESTA is an independent voluntary body for public transport users. Since the 1970s they have also campaigned for better bus services, for bus/rail integration and for the Lowestoft – Norwich rail service.
ESTA has promoted public transport through leaflets, displays, stalls and its website. They have regular dialogue with train and bus operators and with politicians and other stakeholders, while remaining strictly non-party.
Public meetings are held at least three times a year, all members receive a quarterly bulletin and they also organise events.
Listen now to ESTA Chairman, Trevor Garrod to hear more about the work of the group:
