A 15 year vision for transport investment

The Joint Local Transport Plan is our 15 year vision for transport investment in the West of England.

The plan was agreed in 2010 by Bath and North East Somerset Council, Bristol City Council, North Somerset Council and South Gloucestershire Council.

The plan covers the period between 2011 up to 2026.

Greater Bristol Bus Network

The Greater Bristol Bus Network (GBBN) was a £80milion scheme developed by the four councils and bus operator First to improve 10 strategic routes, with the key aim to improve and upgrade the bus network infrastructure.

The key objectives were to enhance the bus passenger experience (through better buses, improved information and improved reliability), to reduce congestion and help lower carbon emissions.

Work on implementing GBBN began in 2008 and the scheme was completed and formally launched in March 2012. The GBBN monitoring report was submitted to the Department for Transport in June 2014 with an accompanying summary.
