As in other aspects of York Civic Trust’s work, we offer our contributions on transport and traffic as a critical friend of City of York Council, providing expertise to complement the Council’s own skills.

Our work on transport is led by Professor Tony May, Emeritus Professor of Transport Engineering at the University of Leeds, who has fifty years’ experience in the development of urban transport policy.  He in turn draws on the specialist skills of a number of Trust members, whose expertise includes environmental and safety impacts, public transport operation, traffic signal control and transport modelling.  We also work closely with specialist groups, including York Bus Forum, York Cycling Campaign, York Environment Forum and York Walk Cycle Forum to share skills and avoid duplicating our efforts.

Our work is both reactive and proactive, and falls broadly into two categories: Transport Policy and Traffic Management and Public Realm for which there is more detail provided on each webpage.
