This was the first the first in the series of articles which will addressed the above question.

Following on from the first article this looked at how collaboration and co-ordination was expected to help the Games organisers and the transport systems operators.


Games Legacy Series: Number 3

This investigated the legacy of London 2012 on the transport system in the UK.  It looked at the concept of freedom and ease of travel and transport, or travel and transport 'mobility'.

This covered the more quiet success for transport and a palpable sense of achievement.  Amongst those who made it work, however, there was a sense of anti-climax.
