Transport Works, the website supported by big city think tanks and organisations - pteg, Core Cities and Centre for Cities, as well as the Campaign for Better Transport - brings together the evidence base for investing in urban transport and intelligent mobility.
Some evidence that the website shows provides a compelling argument for introducing measures that help us to move people and goods more intelligently across our transport network. For example:
The annual cost of congestion in urban areas is £11 billion pounds
There are £3 of benefits for every £1 spent on urban transport networks
Rail journeys increased by 158% in the city regions between 1995 and 2007/8
38% of job seekers say transport is a key barrier to getting a job
