Bring Public Transport into the 21st Century
Under the Tories fares have risen by 60% since 2010, public money is being wasted and promised investment is not being delivered. After the Covid-19 pandemic, we cannot return to business as usual. Our foundations have been weakened by a decade of irresponsible decisions by the Conservatives.
Your next Labour Government will...
invest in transport infrastructure across the UK including the North and put passengers first by giving communities powers to reform networks, keep fares down and improve services.
help the aviation industry recover from the pandemic, including commitments on workers’ rights and environmental protections.
deliver an unprecedented programme of decarbonising and upgrading our transport networks, and embedding positive new trends towards walking and cycling.
put passengers first by taking rail franchises into the public ownership and give communities London-style powers to reform bus networks to keep fares down and improve services.
