We recognise our membership as a powerful resource of expertise, and organise twice-yearly TravelWatch SouthWest General Meetings which keep everyone abreast of developments and ideas. Speakers are invited from government agencies, the transport industry, including bus and train companies, airports and ferry operators, providing insight into the key issues affecting passengers.
At these events, delegates may enter into the discussion, helping to locate and progress service improvements and to ensure that public transport is given the high profile that it deserves.
While general Meetings are a twice yearly fixture in the calendar, we ensure our members actively engage in the consultation process through seminars, meetings and workshops to tackle specific issues, as required.

“Joining the Dots” was launched by Chris Irwin at our October 7th 2017 General Meeting
High numbers were drawn by the day’s theme, “An integrated transport system which includes public transport is key to the three pillars of sustainability essential to a thriving South West”.
Delegates provided interesting questions, commented in “Just a Minute” and discussed stimulating and informative presentations from; Mike Watson, Regional Director England & Wales, Stagecoach; James White, West of England Combined Authority; Alex Carter First Bus in conjunction with Cornwall Council; and Christopher Irwin , TravelWatch South West.
