Transport

Public transport should be a service, not a business. Transport policy should be decided on the basis of public need – not for the benefit of corporate shareholders.

We will make walking and cycling safer – better for our health and the environment.

Cheaper and cleaner

 

The Green Party would:

  • Bring the railways back into public ownership and build new local lines and trams.
  • Restore local government control over buses to improve provision and give them preferential road space.
  • Work to reduce petrol and diesel use.
  • Scrap the pointless and hugely expensive HS2 – a train line for the 1%, not the 99% of rail users.
  • Introduce a standard 20mph speed limit on residential roads to keep children and other vulnerable pedestrians safe.
