Transport Strategies, Funding Bids and Current Consultations

With the recent development of our railway station into a transport hub, an extended world class tram system, and a fantastic bus network that has two award winning bus operators; Nottingham is one of the leading cities in the UK for public transport. To deliver this vision the Council needs a strong and clear strategy.
