Green Drinks Leeds July 2016 - Making transport more sustainable in West Yorkshire
Baht'ap, 11 Mill Hill, Leeds LS1 5DQ
Transport in Leeds and West Yorkshire is a contentious issue, with commuter ridesharing company Daily Ride identifying it as their UK launch city on account of a combination of high car commuting rates and relatively poor public transport.
West Yorkshire Combined Authority are currently developing their new Transport Strategy, which will update the existing Local Transport Plan. The aim is to develop a modern, high class, integrated transport system that supports the Strategic Economic Plan and improves the quality and performance of the transport system within West Yorkshire and our connections with the rest of the UK. Steve Heckley from West Yorkshire Combined Authority will explain what the Local Transport Plan is, and what potential it has for improving the sustainability and emissions of the transport system in West Yorkshire
