Transport in Wales contributes 17% of our total annual carbon emissions and is the third largest greenhouse gas emitting sector.

The Welsh Government must aim to at least double the proportion of journeys made by walking, cycling and public transport by 2030.

For this to happen, we need to invest in innovative active travel initiatives, trial free public transport, and introduce fair pricing for driving in Welsh towns and cities to encourage people to switch to green, healthier modes of transport.

We would also like to reduce our emissions from aviation and not give it public support.
