Taxi! Issues and Options for City Region Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Policy

December, 2017

Our new report, ‘Taxi! Issues and options for city region taxi and private hire vehicle policy’, sets out the far reaching implications for cities of ongoing transformational change and growth in the taxi and PHV sector.

The report also calls for a new approach to taxi and PHV policy to ensure a good service for users whilst also making sure the sector contributes to wider public policy goals around public safety, congestion reduction, economic inclusion and air quality.

The Transformational Benefits of Investing in Regional Rail

October, 2017

Regional rail services carry more than three times the numbers of passengers than the much higher profile long distance (Inter-City) services. As the UK’s city regions increasingly develop their service sector economies and concentrate employment in city centres, rail enables large numbers of people to be moved efficiently and effectively into these ever more congested places.

With signs that central government is beginning to recognise the strength of these arguments, there is a need to translate them into something more tangible and practical by using evidence taken from case studies from around the UK rail network. By providing case studies that potentially have a resonance with other locations, this report aims to help these locations demonstrate the potential economic, social and environmental benefits of developing their own projects to stakeholders and funding and delivery partners.

Policy Futures

September, 2017

Policy futures for urban transport sets out how, with more focused governance in place, the city regions are delivering major investment programmes including on public transport, highways and active travel, and smart ticketing. The report says that - with the right national policy framework - further and faster progress can be made, including:

  • ensuring that the benefits of transformative technological change are maximised including new ways of paying for access to transport, connected and autonomous vehicles and data;
  • that barriers between different sectors are broken down so that the benefits that transport can bring to achieving wider policy goals - in areas like health, employment and education - are fully realised.

Rail Devolution Works

July, 2017

Our ‘Rail Devolution Works’ report argues that further rail devolution will enable other regions and areas to also radically transform rail services in a way that supports economic growth at the same time as improving the journey experience for passengers.

The report takes a detailed look at how devolution changed rail services for the better in Merseyside, on London Overground, in Scotland and in Tyne and Wear.
