The urgency of the climate crisis cannot be overstated. Yet the transport sector is currently the number one contributor to the United Kingdom’s greenhouse gas emissions and little progress has been made in over the past three decades in reducing emissions.

This report outlines a vision for a transport system that is fair to all, works to improve people’s health and wellbeing and provides a better environment for nature.
