Air Quality News reports that Manchester City Council has stated that they want 50% of all journeys in Greater Manchester to be taken by public transport, bike or on foot by 2040. The Council also wants 90% of all trips to the city centre during the morning rush hour to be made on public transport, bike or foot by the same date. The targets take into account Manchester’s wider aim of becoming a zero carbon city by 2038.

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
