On the 29 March 2016, Solent Transport submitted The Better Connected Solent bid to the Department for Transport (DfT) for £0.95 million of Sustainable Transport Transition Year Funding in 2016/17, supported by £0.19m of local contributions.
This bid aims to position Solent Transport as a leader in sustainable travel through ambition, action and consolidation and building on previous success. It will link objectives and activity with existing schemes in public health, education, workplaces and City Deal to improve health and economic vitality in Solent, with a strong emphasis on walking and cycling.
Through a Centre of Excellence (CoE), we bring together best practice, travel planning, tool kits and award winning campaign materials. This project is the glue that adds value to and leverages the work of our neighbouring authorities.
