Imagine a city where it’s enjoyable, convenient and affordable for everyone to travel sustainably every day…
Imagine a city where everyone, of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, can get around easily. A city where it is enjoyable, convenient and affordable for everyone to get from A to B and where the transport network is simple to use, well-connected and reliable.
Imagine a city with inspiring and vibrant public spaces, which help communities across the city to come alive and thrive; where transport and public space come together to create a liveable environment that’s good for us and good for the city, free from congestion, as well as air and noise pollution.
A city where it’s normal for everyone to travel sustainably every day, and we celebrate the culture of sustainable travel.
We believe that this can become a reality for Bristol, with inspiring projects already happening and the potential for so much more.

• Watch this space for further opportunities to contribute to the West of England’s Joint Transport Study and Joint Spatial Plan;
