Norwich Public Transport

Norwich Bus

We want to hear your views on how to improve public transport in Norwich.

Norwich has much work to do to create a modern-day transport system fit for the 21st century but with the city hoping to benefit from the Government's Transforming Cities Fund it could see one of the biggest transformations the city has seen in many years.

Under the proposals, there could be a major expansion of bus services in the Greater Norwich area, including more park and ride and new links to the University of East Anglia, Norwich Research Park and Norwich Airport.

Brian Watkins, Liberal Democrat group spokesperson says "the money could make a real difference and could help to bring about a modal shift in the way people travel in and around Norwich. it is important though to safeguard the vibrancy of the city economy and public transport can play an important role in maximising economic productivity.

In America, the American Public Transport Association has estimated that for every $1 billion invested in public transport infrastructure, 36,000 jobs are created, in turn generating over $3 billion in commercial transactions and approximately $500 million in government tax revenues.

'90% of car journeys during peak hour times have just one person in the vehicle and we need to find ways to reduce this. This is not just about investing in greener, cleaner transport modes and reducing congestion, it has much wider benefits in terms of health, employment and the quality of Norwich's local environment".

What is important is that any changes to public transport meets with the public's approval and helps everyone to be able to move better across the City. We would like to hear your views n what should be done.
