Welcome to our website

We are a non-funded voluntary body formed in 1972 under the title of East Suffolk Travellers' Association, Felixstowe, to promote public transport in and around the town. Membership stands at just over 400 which gives us a significant voice when making contact with the local authorities, rail, bus and coach operators about local services.
