  • Ten years ago we launched our Save our Buses campaign. As the long-awaited National Bus Strategy for England is published, will it be enough to set buses on the road to recovery?

  • Our survey has revealed that cars will continue to be the preferred mode of transport for around half of journeys post-Covid, putting climate targets and a fair economic recovery at risk unless the Governemnt takes action to encourage more people to choose public transport.

  • We're calling for flexible season tickets for part time commuters

    Many more people are expected to return to workplaces part time as a result of the pandemic. But will they get a fair deal on rail tickets?

    If you commute part time - or you're likely to start - please tell us your thoughts about rail ticketing.

  • The effect of Covid-19 on transport has been seismic. But as recovery begins, the need for sustainable travel has only strengthened. Our report outlines how it can be achieved.

"A flexible approach to season tickets will be essential in 2021 and beyond. If it's not offered then I won't be returning to the office." That’s what commuter James told us about how his travel patterns are likely to change after the health crisis - and he's not alone.
