- New report shows essential role devolved authorities can play in station transformation
The Urban Transport Group, the UK’s network of city region transport authorities, has today responded to the Government’s package of financial support for urban public transport as it works to keep people moving through the COVID-19 crisis.
More funding support will be needed as part of collaborative approach to getting pupils safely to school.
Stephen Edwards, Chair of the Urban Transport Group, said:
City region transport authorities have sent an open letter to the Transport Minister Baroness Vere on the urgent need to cover the gap for the city regions outside London on COVID-19.
The Urban Transport Group’s number one priority is to support our members (the public sector transport authorities for the largest city regions) in responding to the coronavirus crisis in the best way they can for the users of their services, their people and the places they serve.
