Building successful and sustainable communities requires the pursuit of policies attuned to economic, social and environmental objectives. This is especially true for transport policy and investment decisions which require a balanced approach to delivering economic prosperity, supporting social inclusion and protecting the natural environment.
The first order effects of better bus services emerge through improvements in travel times, reliability, comfort or fares. The research question explored in this work is: Is there a link between bus accessibility and social outcomes?
Greener Journeys is working with the LEP Network and Local Partnerships to establish a Transport Knowledge Hub to support local decision-makers develop and deliver transport policy and investment initiatives to support economic growth.
