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.

• Include measures to promote sustainable transport in your organisation, such as providing secure cycle parking for employees and offering incentives to those who use sustainable travel methods to get to work;
• Watch this space for further opportunities to contribute to the West of England’s Joint Transport Study and Joint Spatial Plan;
