On creating "better physical links" between Chester Zoo and Chester

Curiously, this next story is currently published on the Ellesmere Port Pioneer's website but not, apparently, on our own Chester Chronicle's.  Or, at least, not at the moment.  Anyhow, wherever it's to be found, it comes from Trinity Mirror - and here you have the bit I like the best:
Prof Reid explained: “It is essential that better physical links are created between the zoo and Chester. We trialled a bus shuttle this summer and autumn to promote more use of public transport and linked the service to the four train operators at Chester station, 5,000 visitors used the 16 seater shuttle bus in seven weeks.”
More on the wider story of Chester Zoo's expansion plans can be found here.  The documents themselves can be found here, though the exclusive reliance on .pdf files is not really to my liking. 

Finally, if you'd like to comment online on the plans, you can do so via this webpage, where if you scroll down before doing so you can also find further information in a rather more manageable format.
