Greener transport plans are working, Government says

12.00 | 2 January 2014 |

The Government says its efforts to make it easier for people to choose greener ways of travelling are working, according to a new report published on 31 December.

The Government launched its ‘door to door strategy’ in March 2013 and the ‘door to door action plan’ identifies the progress being made in making journeys by public transport, cycling or walking “the norm”.

Baroness Kramer, transport minister said: “Real life journeys on public transport tend to be more complicated than just a single trip on a train or three stops on the local bus. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to choose greener ways of getting between each mode of transport.

“Since we launched the door to door strategy eight months ago, there have already been significant improvements to integrate public transport. This action plan highlights where progress has been made but there is still more to be done. The plan gives a clear signal that this remains a priority area for the department.”
