This week Cardiff Council announced its ambitious plans to invest £2bn to transform Cardiff and South East Wales’ transport network.
The White Paper lists a series of projects which could revolutionise public transport options in Cardiff and the region, including:
?Expanding current Metro plans to deliver more new tram/train routes and stations in Cardiff and the region
?Introducing new Bus Rapid Transit services and Park & Ride sites;
?Lowering the cost of bus travel significantly
?Delivering safer walking and cycling routes
?Offering real travel options designed to get people out of their cars and onto public transport.
The plans will create a fully integrated public transport network, it will include light rail, buses and link with active travel – walking and cycling.
The £2bn cost could be part-funded by a daily £2 road-user-charging scheme, which could include an exemption for Cardiff residents, the council has revealed.
