Tom Tabart, Drysdale Vic

Having a been an advocate for a European style park and ride system for Byron Bay over many years, I applaud and am in furious agreement with your article and editorial last week.

A new opportunity has opened up to pursue this initiative with the demise of the West Byron development and supported by the history of the sports centre and new possibilities outlined by Jan Barham.

Previous attempts have been at best half-hearted and doomed to failure, having provided neither the amenity or promotion necessary to get people out of their cars. 

The implementation of a working scheme will be expensive but will be cheap in the context of the many advantages that will ensue.

My personal scheme has always included a remote car park at Tyagarah and use of the train line to Byron.

Dropping the ridiculous, expensive and destructive  Byron bypass would be a good lead in.
