CPRE wants to see local transport improved so that there is genuine travel choice across England and dependency on car use is reduced
To help achieve our vision we are campaigning for a national transport policy of ‘smarter travel first’, which will mean improving sustainable local transport so that road-building becomes the option of last resort.
CPRE and local transport
At the very local level, our Transport Toolkit is full of useful ideas and inspiring case studies to help you improve travel where you live.
How local transport is delivered is hugely important to every community. For work, education and for leisure, people need safe and affordable travel choices to make those local journeys. Taking buses, walking and cycling are all key for local transport but all are under serious threat from funding cuts and wider Government policies.
Just like with the rollout of superfast broadband, it makes little sense to leave out the last mile connections between homes and business - and connecting rural areas can also be really beneficial. But funding is being prioritised for longer distance travel.
