Overview

Welsh Government policies set out a new direction for transport in Wales in response to the climate emergency. It is recognised that if we are going to meet our climate change targets, modal shift is required, and Llwybr Newydd | The Wales Transport Strategy sets out a target that 45% of journeys to be made by public transport, walking and cycling by 2040. Achieving this target presents a professional challenge to industry professionals in Wales – collectively, we are tasked with transforming the way people travel in Wales. 

What do we need to do differently, and what can we learn from best practice elsewhere?
