Levelling up public transport

Public transport has a key role in facilitating productivity growth and prosperity. Better transport connections can attract new jobs to a struggling town, enable residents to access good jobs and services in a nearby area, and allow businesses to cooperate across a wider geographic area. This event considered how investment in the UK’s transport infrastructure can contribute to levelling up our towns and cities.
