Transport is at the heart of how we all live our day to day lives.
Individuals, families, workers, businesses – we all rely on the transport systems and connections which enable us to see one another, get from A to B, or travel further afield.
Technology is already driving radical changes in transport, opening up opportunities for automation, electrification, improved connectivity, enhanced air quality and decarbonisation of all our transport systems.
It’s a fast-paced, innovative, forward looking sector that touches on multiple policy areas.
