Call for free bus travel for under 30s

View original

Friends of the Earth have published new research which calls for free bus travel to be extended to under 30s and local authorities should consider making bus travel free to all eventually. The report finds that in order to meet climate change targets, a 20% reduction in car journeys is necessary, even with a faster switch to electric cars and more rapid decarbonation of the electricity grid. They argue that the Department for Transport is failing on climate change and called for a radical overhaul of the transport system as the use of cars account for more than a third of total emissions.

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
