Dec. 9th Forum: Bristol’s Public Transport at a Crossroads


This Public Forum, organised by the Transport for Greater Bristol Alliance, will ramp up the pressure on local government to deal with Bristol's transport mess in a way that prioritises health, access, and quality of life

This Public Forum, organised by the Transport for Greater Bristol Alliance, will ramp up the pressure on local government to deal with Bristol's transport crisis swiftly and sustainably

If you are fed up with Bristol’s transport problems and want to hear about and share solutions, this forum on Dec. 9th is one you don’t want to miss.  Christian Wolmar will be the main speaker, joined by Cat Hobbs of the Campaign for Better Transport who ran the campaign to increase service on the Severn Beach Line, and also your blogger who will be speaking about my Driven to Excess research.
I first heard Christian  speak at the Driving Change conference in London, where he rightly criticised the government’s “modal agnosticism” around transport.   A compelling, hard-hitting and knowledgeable speaker- you don’t want to miss him.
Here is some of the publicity that’s been sent around in advance of the forum:
It’s no secret that Bristol’s public transport is failing both the community and commerce. It is too expensive, dirty and unreliable. People are forced to use their cars with consequential delays, parking problems, an unacceptably high death and injury toll, and pollution. We are at a crossroads in terms of the need to make the right transport decisions. You are invited to hear and discuss options which will could radically improve travel times and costs across Bristol at a Public Forum in the centre of Bristol.

Hope to see you all there!
