Driving down emissions for low carbon public transport

In the UK, road transport is the only sector where emissions have continued to grow, increasing by 6% to ~118 MtCO2e by 2017, the equivalent of 21% of the UK’s total GHG emissions (ONS, 2019). Car use remains one of the most popular methods of travel with 31.5 million licensed vehicles, contributing to 62% of the total transport GHG emissions in 2016 . If the UK is to meet its net zero emission reduction targets from transport, focus needs to be placed on shifting away from personal vehicles towards low carbon public transport.
