Find out more about how working across policy divides could achieve better outcomes for communities and taxpayers

In June 2011, pteg published 'Total Transport: Working across sectors to achieve better outcomes'.

The term 'Total Transport' describes the need to work across the public policy divides to deliver better outcomes for communities and taxpayers through the sharing of resources and expertise.

The report highlights the essential role of public transport, walking and cycling in achieving key health, social care and employment policy goals and outlines eleven practical steps towards a 'Total Transport' approach.

One of the practical steps identified in the report was to hold a 'Total Transport' event to share good practice on cross-sector working, focusing on the pooling of vehicle fleets and budgets as a practical, tangible way forward.

This event was held in London on the 24th October 2012 by pteg, Local Government Association, ATCO and the Community Transport Association. The event was designed as a practical, working session with plenty of opportunities to learn from, and network with, like-minded colleagues from a range of sectors.

You can download the Total Transport report, and resources from the event, below.

In 2015, the Government launched a Total Transport Pilot Fund to enable local authorities in England to try new and better ways of delivering joined-up local transport in rural and isolated areas.
