Safety, Accessibility and Efficiency Programme

Investing in Bus Stations, Shelters and Clean Growth

  • The Safety, Accessibility and Efficiency Programme includes three schemes from the Local Transport Plan programme: The Invest to Save scheme will provide new infrastructure to reduce water and electricity consumption, improve recycling rates and reduce the number of Combined Authority vehicles powered by fossil fuels. Reducing emissions from the Combined Authority’s assets will help achieve our ambition of being net zero carbon economy by 2038. These changes will be implemented at bus stations across West Yorkshire.

 

 

  • The Bus Shelter scheme will replace old shelters with ones that can incorporate digital advertising; increasing revenue income gained from those shelters in the future.

 

The objectives of the programme are:

  • Maintain and protect public assets
  • Carbon savings on Combined Authority assets
  • Make certain health and safety improvements standard across West Yorkshire
  • Improve accessibility
  • Create a safer and more comfortable environment for staff and customers
  • Provide station upgrades in line with the Transport Strategy 2040 and Asset Development Plan

The benefits of the programme are:

  • Contribute towards the Leeds City Region 2038 target of net zero carbon
  • Improved health and wellbeing of staff and customers
  • Improved air quality following transport modal shift
