    The Government gives grants for converting to electric cars and vans - but not to electric bikes. Let's get that changed!

    Please email your MP and ask for this simple change: it would not cost any extra money, would be popular and would do a lot of good.

    Our new guide, Expanding the Railways, will make it easier to get a station or a section of track built or reopened, as Lea Bridge was last year.

  • Graph showing decreasing financial support for buses since 2010

    Our new research shows that funding for buses across England and Wales has been cut by 33% since 2010, and by nearly £30 million in just the last year.

    Find out what's happening and what you can do (and see the Welsh graph).

  • Pic: comparison of existing lorries and trial lorries

    The Government has just decided to allow 1,000 more longer lorries on UK roads as part of a trial. Help us ensure that they are not allowed in towns and cities where they will be a danger to cyclists and pedestrians: write to your MP.

  • Our successes, 2016

    We've been looking back on the things we've achieved - with your help - over the past year.
