Carbon savings from public transport improvements in Wales

The Welsh Government commissioned Transport for Quality of Life and Arup to assess the level of mode shift targets required in the Wales Transport Strategy, Llwybr Newydd (2021) in order to meet climate change commitments.

The reports assessed the carbon gap that will need to be filled by other measures beyond electrification of car travel, considered the potential carbon reductions achievable from active travel and public transport, and assessed how investment in active travel and public transport will need to be complemented by demand management measures such as road user charging.

Further papers presented possible mode share targets and considered ways in which demand management measures can be designed as ‘benefits-and-charges packages’ in order to win public support and enable political leaders to advocate them.
