Advocating for a sustainable and inclusive transport system

Transport is an important issue both for Bristol’s communities and to the city’s transition to net zero. This programme champions the transport priorities of Bristol’s diverse communities and demonstrates how the transition to more sustainable transport can help improve people’s everyday lives.

Transport vision

In 2024 a new inclusive transport vision was launched to champion the low carbon transport priorities in Bristol’s first community climate action plans. Developed through engagement with community and transport sector partners, the vision advocates for the transport needs of Bristol’s community of Disabled people, refugees and migrants, and people from parts of the city that are often left out of transport decision making.

This is a transport vision with a difference. It’s about being constructive and amplifying the transport views and needs of diverse communities across the city.

Inclusive Transport Advocate

In collaboration with Sustrans, a new inclusive transport advocate role has been created as part of the Climate and Disability programme. The role will advocate for positive changes to the local transport system that support an inclusive shift to low carbon transport that is usable, accessible and safe for everyone. It will have a particular focus on the transport priorities of Bristol’s community of Disabled people.

Community toolkit

Project partner Sustrans is developing a new community toolkit to support and encourage local people to make change happen in their neighbourhood, which supports a transition to lower carbon transport, and a fairer and safer city for everyone. This practical guidance will be developed with community partners, by the Inclusive Transport Advocate.
