  • The cost of car parking at the Hospital is also a concern, particularly for regular visitors. However, the Concessionary Bus Pass Scheme does enable older people travelling by bus to benefit from free transport.

Areas for action

  • Better promotion of Community Transport availability and of public transport services to the Hospital.

  • Health providers to consider grouping appointments together to reduce the need to travel on several separate occasions.

  • Services to be provided locally, wherever possible, to reduce the need to travel.

3b) Transport

Filey is served by a range of public transport routes, in particular bus and rail. These provide local services within Filey itself and link the town to Scarborough and beyond, with through services to York and Leeds. To the South of the Town there are routes to Bridlington and Hull. Services run all year, although with increased frequency in the summer months. Many older residents are able to take advantage of concessionary bus fares and travel freely around the Borough and beyond. There is a train station in the town.

By road the key route into Filey is the A165. The A64 is also important for the local economy and the Town Council support proposals to improve and upgrade this route.
