Since taking up my post, it has been clear that tackling the climate crisis is a top priority. We know that transport is the second-highest emitter when it comes to greenhouse gases, so it is critical that we are investing to deliver a cleaner and greener transport fleet.
We have invested £74 million to enable us to purchase 145 low and zero-emission buses; we have also significantly invested in improvements in our rail network, including improving customer experience and attracting people to use our rail network instead of using public transport.

Sometimes we think that the climate crisis is too big to tackle or that it is something that is happening to someone else – it is happening right now, and we all have a responsibility to adapt our behaviour. Choosing public transport or active travel is one way in which you can make a big difference in terms of tackling the climate emergency.
