Cardiff to host public consultation on delivering an intelligent transport network

08 March 2022/Categories: CILT, Active Travel & Travel Planning, Bus & Coach, Transport Planning

The Council aims to reduce congestion, improve bus travel and incentivise cycling and walking. Using real-time information an ‘intelligent transport system' could use a range of measures to help people take decisions about the best way to move around the city on a given day or time.

This includes:

  • Having a transport user app for the public
  • Ensuring that the new bus interchange is integrated into Cardiff's highway network
  • Developing integrated ticketing between different forms of transport
  • Implementing SMART corridors to improve bus journey times and manage cross-border travel from neighbouring authorities
  • Creating an integrated control room with our transport and public sector partners, and
  • Upgrading telematics systems and infrastructure.

Cllr Caro Wild, Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning and Transport said: "We want to reduce harmful emissions, improve air quality and make Cardiff a healthier city to live and work in. One of the best ways to do that is to change the way we move around the city encouraging public transport, cycling and walking as preferred ways of getting around.

"By 2030, we would like to see 76% of all journeys made by sustainable forms of transport. To do that we will need to double the number of people travelling by bike or by bus. To achieve this, we need better infrastructure which is managed by an integrated, intelligent transport system. It would act as the nerve centre ensuring bus corridors, cycleways and improved pedestrian crossings and pavements are recognised as a key part of the network, and helping to make travel on Cardiff's roads as efficient as possible.”

Four key themes are explored in the draft strategy: New Control Centre with improved technology and closer working with public transport providers; Improve communication to all those travelling on Cardiff's highway network; Implement SMART corridors and Fully integrated Mass Transit System.
