The future of public transport is characterised by uncertainty. While the climate crisis requires a fundamental shift in travel behaviour to secure a transition to net-zero, exponential technological progress is beginning to significantly impact transport business models and has the potential to reshape how we think about personal mobility.

The benefits of an effective, multi-modal, integrated public transport system go beyond getting people from A to B but provide an opportunity to transform passengers' experience and contribute to a more sustainable future in our cities and neighbourhoods.

This paper aims to enable transport authorities across the UK to shape a bold integrated transport vision for their area. We identify practical steps for authorities that move beyond reactive measures to create a public transport system capable of delivering significant modal shift, reducing car ownership and associated widespread benefits for cities.
