Decarbonising Transport

Event Information

Dave Atkinson, Head of Highways and Transport, City of York Council

Transport contributes around 28% of greenhouse gas emissions in York and as part of the City’s climate change strategy it is projected that a significant reduction in these emissions is required to deliver on the City’s climate change ambitions. The challenge in delivery is balancing needs around private and public transport and reducing emissions and improving health and wellbeing. Projects in York looking to address these challenges include the electrification of the bus fleet, smart transport systems and connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV), City wide shared mobility schemes (including e-bikes and e-scooters) and studies into freight movement in the City and small parcel delivery.
