We have funding!

We’re delighted to announce that Transport for Greater Bristol and our partner Zero West have jointly secured funding from the Foundation for Integrated Transport for a project to:

1.  Raise the level of strategic vision for Bristol’s transport system among local and national decision makers, the general public, and sustainable transport advocates.

2.  Create a more integrated and aligned ecosystem among sustainable transport advocates in Bristol and the wider region.

3.  Ensure the TfGB vision for transport is prominent in the discussions around the Bristol and WECA Mayoral elections in 2021 (and beyond).

We have secured a total of £28,800, for alliance-building, professional technical review and maps, graphic design and advocacy.  Our explicit aim is to shift the trajectory of Bristol’s transport system and shape a vision of efficient and affordable public transport; safe streets for walking and cycling; clean air; and neighbourhoods where children can play.

This project builds on the two groups’ earlier work on the Bristol Transport Plan, and will be run by a core team of Transport for Greater Bristol and Zero West members, with project management from Zero West. 

It will include organising stakeholder workshops with people from different travel campaigns, representatives from civic organisations, especially those who currently feel prevented or impeded in using public transport, and neighbourhood organisations, to feed in to the proposals being put forward. This will lead to a designed and engaging summary document which will show why our vision for the future of Bristol’s transport system will bring environmental, air quality and social benefits.

Further details of the project will be announced soon.
