“Executive Summary

Liberal Democrats believe that the transport system should empower individuals to make sustainable choices about the way in which they live, whilst offering modern, affordable, accessible and reliable means of travelling around Britain.

This paper addresses the key challenges facing transport in 21st century Britain: those of reducing carbon emissions and increasing capacity. It seeks to price behaviour according to its impact on the environment, whilst creating real sustainable alternatives for passengers through a step change in the provision and performance of public transport.

Liberal Democrats will aim for a carbon-neutral Britain by 2050: this paper empowers both the transport system and individuals to reduce emissions, whilst ensuring there is fair access to an improved transport system for all. “
