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.
