The transport sector is the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases in Wales, with cars producing some of the highest emissions. Moving journeys from the car to buses and coaches could play a significant part in delivering decarbonisation in Wales. A previous report by WPI Economics found that shifting more journeys to bus and coach in Wales could save up to 900 million KGs of CO2 by 2050. But what can policymakers do to encourage and enable this shift?
At this event, a panel of experts came together to discuss the new report and its recommended policy packages. This project is kindly sponsored by the Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT).
