Transport Planning Day 2019


Showing how Transport Planning changes lives for the better

Successful Transport Planning improves quality of life. Whether it is a revamped high-street, a new walking bridge or a new bus route. Transport Planning has a big impact.

We set-up Transport Planning Day to highlight best practice in engaging and empowering communities and putting people at the heart of transport plans.

The campaign highlights the significant contribution transport planners make to people across the UK.

The centre pieces of Transport Planning Day are our awards:

The People's Award 

Nominations are now open for the People's Award 

This year we are pleased to announce a new award for best practice in sustainable transport for housing development in partnership with Transport for New Homes (more information coming soon).

We will announce the winners on Transport Planning Day on 20 November at the Institution of Civil Engineers in London.

Why celebrate transport planning?

We all rely on transport to connect us to the things we need - our jobs, homes, schools, family, friends and vital services such as GPs and hospitals. But most of us don’t think about the planning that goes into making it work. Successful Transport Planning manages demand for travel in a way that is:



Successful transport planning creates liveable neighbourhoods and quality places for people. It enables us to lead healthy and active lifestyles by walking and cycling short journeys. And it has an important role to play in addressing climate change, reducing our dependence on cars – by providing good alternatives when we need them.

Transport Planning Day 2019 highlights the vital role that transport planners play in improving quality of life. It raises awareness of the benefits of transport planning in addressing climate change, providing economic opportunity and improving our health.

Transport Planning Day will bring together communities, local politicians and professionals, from across the built environment sector. The event will discuss best practice in community engagement in transport planning and highlight developments that put people first by encouraging sustainable transport choices.
