Committee to hold fourth evidence session into Reforming public transport after the pandemic

5 March 2021

This is the fourth session of the Committee’s inquiry on Reforming public transport after the pandemic and will focus on local roads and active travel.

Purpose of the session

The Committee will examine:

  • The challenges and opportunities the pandemic has raised for use of local roads, including the implications of greater homeworking and online shopping;
  • The lessons Government and councils should learn from how the Emergency Active Travel Fund was used, particularly for the future delivery of cycling and walking infrastructure; and
