** Launching Better Transport Week


We are extremely pleased to be launching our first ever Better Transport Week today!

Better Transport Week will run from 12 to 18 June 2023 to promote the benefits of public transport, shared mobility, walking and cycling and encourage more people to travel sustainably. Packed with events, positive actions, eye-catching social media and more, the week will bring the transport industry, government, business and NGOs together, along with passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, and anyone who cares about transport.
Actions... events... competitions... special offers!
Find out about everything that's going on during #BetterTransportWeek by following Campaign for Better Transport on social media. We're on Twitter ([link removed]) , Facebook ([link removed]) and LinkedIn ([link removed]) .
NEW: we're now on Instagram ([link removed]) too!

With a different theme for each day of the week, there'll be something for everyone, whether you're a bus or train passenger, a cyclist, a car club member, or prefer to travel by shanks's pony.
* Monday 12 June - Rail Day. We will be meeting passengers at Kings Cross St Pancras, hosting a rail roundtable at the Railway Industry Association and inviting the public to celebrate train travel and rail stations, with prizes including Eurostar tickets to Paris!
* Tuesday 13 June - Bus and Coach Day. Celebrating our most used form of public transport with the public encouraged to thank their driver and share why buses and coaches are important to them.
* Wednesday 14 June - Local Transport Day. We will be in Manchester for a local transport roundtable, followed by 'Light Years Ahead', our special tram and light rail event. There will be a 'Ride to Rail' challenge with prizes available for supporters to highlight the importance of integration between modes.
* Thursday 15 June - Health Day. Highlighting the links between better transport and better health including a partnership with Global Action Plan on Clean Air Day. We will bring together experts from the health and transport sectors, while supporters will map walking routes that connect to public transport.
* Friday 16 June - Business Day. With business groups, shared mobility providers and innovators in delivery and freight, we will be encouraging businesses and business groups to maximise the benefits of incorporating sustainable travel into their operations, and promoting better transport for better business.
* Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 June. Rounding off the week with two days of promotions to celebrate public transport, walking and cycling. Take advantage of our partner promotions for fun days out, and a very exciting competition.

We've partnered with a host of leading transport organisations ([link removed]) and have secured some brilliant promotions and competition prizes for the week. We're hoping that you, our supporters, will join in the celebration by using sustainable transport during the week and helping us spread the message about how great trains, buses, coaches, walking, cycling, wheeling and shared mobility are.
