Transforming Cities Fund

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

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

The bid is 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 including 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, if successful, will allow the development of more detailed proposals.
