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.
