Transport is one of the most hotly contested issues in Cambridge, and the Transport Group focuses on developing plans for a future transport system that is accessible, affordable, sustainable and reliable. These aims are not only essential to good quality of life, but also to people’s ability to access the good jobs created here, live affordably and to the wider aim of reaching net zero. A significant part of this work relates to the provision of new transport infrastructure to support public transport usage and active travel.
