Transport and mobility is integral to society – it creates growth, generates jobs, facilitates trade and connects people and places. There is a growing need to develop a transformational national transport policy that places the needs of the consumer at its centre. This then needs to be translated by local authorities, developers, and operators into an interoperable, integrated system that gives customers options, reduces congestion, improves air quality and embraces data and technology.

The climate emergency and call for clean air zones is another driving force for improved mobility options. Solutions such as robust electric vehicle charging infrastructure and improved cycle networks and hire schemes, can go a long way to helping reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality in our cities.
