This will be a twenty year vision for developing a modern, high class, integrated transport system that supports the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership’s Strategic Economic Plan for sustained and healthy economic growth - especially for jobs and housing.

    In January, West Yorkshire Combined Authority was informed by the Department for Transport that West Yorkshire had been allocated £6.925m of funding from the National Productivity Investment Fund. West Yorkshire partners will use funds allocated to deliver a range of schemes across West Yorkshire.

    The West Yorkshire Combined Authority works to develop better transport networks for tomorrow, provide day-to-day services, such as bus stations and travel centres under the Metro brand name. It also runs the MetroLine call centre, the Metro websites and the yournextbus real-time service.
