What the Transforming Cities Fund means for West Yorkshire
- More accessible, affordable and attractive greener transport options
- Connecting people to economic and education opportunities
- Happier and healthier communities for the future
Developing a 21st Century transport system is central to the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s vision of building a strong, successful, zero carbon economy that provides a great quality of life for everyone who lives and works in the region.
Providing an accessible, attractive and cleaner alternative to car journeys is at the heart of the Leeds City Region Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) - a major new programme of transport infrastructure investment secured as part of the West Yorkshire devolution deal.
The programme, which is being delivered by the Combined Authority in partnership with local authorities, will be funded through £317 million from the Department for Transport (DfT) plus local match funding up to £140 million.
Communities across Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York are set to benefit from the schemes, which include new or improved bus and rail stations, cycling and walking infrastructure, and new Park and Rides.
