Welsh Labour will work with partners to develop education, marketing and other tools to transform the image of walking, cycling and public transport – this will include further support to expand TfW’s community engagement role to include travel planning, supporting partners and other organisations to deliver facilities and programmes which encourage modal shift.

In 2022 we delivered a Public Transport Recovery Campaign to help address the challenges of attracting people back to using public transport. The Welsh Labour government seems to have overlooked the rugged terrain of the valleys.

It appears the Labour Party may have forgotten the unique challenges posed by Wales’ aging population and the hilly landscape of the Welsh Valleys, where public transport remains virtually non-existent.

The first phase of this was launched in April as ‘the real social network’. Working with our partners we will use our future campaigns and marketing materials to build on our investments in walking, cycling and public transport to transform their image and become the natural choice for everyday journeys.

The Welsh Government will refresh these campaigns as behaviours change to maintain the momentum and embed sustainable choices for the future. To be motivated to a sustainable choice it is vital that people feel safe, welcome, comfortable and confident when using public transport and other sustainable travel modes.

The Welsh Government have a wide range of projects across each mode and sector to transform customer experiences, from developing national standards for taxis to how many old age pensioners can afford to use a taxi all the time. Improving accessibility, facilities and signage at our rail stations. For customers to be confident in using our sustainable transport services they must be reliable. Our investment in vehicles and rolling stock, the redesign of bus networks and prioritising road space for sustainable transport will support this reliability and build the confidence that services will be there when needed.
The Welsh Government work on integrated ticketing and journey planning outlined in priority 2, above, is essential to improving the customer experience of sustainable transport by making it easy and
affordable to use for door-to-door journeys.

We The Labour Party will also motivate people away from private car use through demand management,

( Demand management equates to how you oversee and manage customer demand. It involves understanding what your customers want, plus the necessary steps to fulfil those wants. like lifting the 20 MPH)

The Wales Transport Strategy includes a commitment to develop a national road user charging framework.

Yes we all want to pay more to be able to drive our car van to work because there is no public transport to get us there on time whoever makes up this legislation has no comprehension of how most tradespeople get to work and what they need to carry to use in work.

Further work will be undertaken to develop a fair and equitable road user charging framework, including how local authorities can borrow against these future revenue streams to fund transport improvements; (Filling in potholes would be a good start, it is costing the Welsh motorist thousands) also consider other alternatives such as workplace car parking levies and road space reallocation.

You keep voting for us after reading the above and we will soon have you paying through the nose if you want to own a car and drive in Wales. You have voted for us for years why change a habit of a lifetime, you know we are on the side of the working class.
