NLTP public transport infographic Public transport has an essential role to play in reducing reliance on single- occupancy car trips, easing congestion in urban areas, enabling people to get to their destinations more efficiently, and decreasing the environmental impact of the transport system.

It also provides a safe and affordable transport alternative for those who do not have easy access to a vehicle.

There will be a 53 percent increase in expenditure on public transport over the next three years compared to the previous NLTP. Public transport enhancements during the next three years will typically look to:

  • increase the frequency of services
  • establish additional bus lanes
  • improve the quality and accessibility of infrastructure like bus stops and stations
  • improve connections with other modes of transport such as walking and cycling, and
  • expand networks so more people can get where they need to go.

This NLTP’s investment in public transport is also supporting the transport- disadvantaged to access education, employment, recreation and healthcare. The Total Mobility scheme, for example, assists eligible people with long-term impairments to access appropriate transport, while our Requirements for Urban Buses ensure accessibility features such as low floors and large signage.

The Transport Agency’s ‘Mobility as a Service’ sees a continuation of investment in nationally-delivered technology applications aimed at providing customers with information around their travel choices. While multi-modal in nature, it is funded under the public transport activity class as the applications are seen to generally support the use of public transport modes.
