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 help to make journeys in the West of England as simple as possible. Travelwest provides journey planning and live updates, as well as information on public transport fares, routes and timetables and support for walking and cycling.
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.
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.
This funding is for a five-year period (2022- 2027) and is focussed on how we will decarbonise transport, promoting a shift from cars to public transport, walking and cycling.
We have declared a climate emergency. We are committed to reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality by cutting traffic congestion. This will benefit us all in improving the environment we live in. We have published our plans in the Joint Local Transport Plan 4.
