About the Travel Plan
Revival Fires is seeking, with the support of the TravelWise programme, to pro-actively assist travel to and from the Apostolic Revival Centre. We want to reduce congestion and provide quick, efficient and economical alternative means of transport.
We hope that this guide will be helpful in raising your awareness to a range of travel options. The Apostolic Revival Centre has a very central location in Dudley, making alternative forms of transport very accessible. Revival Fires also seeks to be a blessing to our local community, and this Travel Plan will assist us to do so.
In each of the Travel Plan pages, you can click on the maps and pre-planned routes for each alternative option and print them off to make your journey as pleasant and easy as possible. So whether you are travelling from near or far, visit regulary or rarely, there is a viable transport alternative for you!
