Transforming Cities Fund - Stage 1 Bid

The Combined Authority’s Stage 1 submission submitted in June 2018.

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority submitted an ambitious bid to the Government’s Transforming Cities Fund in June 2018.

The Combined Authority’s submission set out proposals to improve public transport along four key routes in the Leeds City Region and upgrade connections to eight rail stations.

The bid focused on funding better transforming transport connections for those communities most in need of access to jobs, services and education. Priorities set out in the submission included creating healthy streets, supporting cycling and walking as well as exploring the opportunities offered by new technology.

The Stage 1 application form and appendices were submitted on 8 June 2018 and were the basis of the more detailed proposals now submitted.
