To meet our ambitious 2030 net zero target we need better public transport. We are working to improve bus services, so that we have a greener, better connected transport network for our residents.
We’re funding a new entrance at Bristol Temple Meads, a key regional transport hub, making it easier for passengers to get around the city and improving connectivity in the West of England region.
We have committed £13 million to enable more people to walk and cycle, including immediate support for Covid recovery and the reopening of high streets.
We’ve committed £4 million to trial new ways of moving around the region.
Setting out the transport projects (2021-2026) planned for the West of England region.

Connecting people and places for a vibrant, inclusive and carbon neutral West of England.
We have submitted our proposals for a transport settlement from Government to help us achieve our net zero carbon targets and transform the way people travel across the region.

We have plans to transform travel by rail over the next 10 years, including new rail routes, step-free access at stations and more frequent ‘turn up and go’ services.
The bus strategy considers options to improve the bus network and set out how further growth in bus usage can be encouraged, including proposals to create better, faster, more reliable and more accessible services across the region.
