  • 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).

  • Photo: protesters against third runway

    Just 15% of the UK population takes more than 70% of our flights. We think everyone should have one tax-free flight a year, with each additional flight being taxed at an increasing level. Best of all, this levy would make it unnecessary to build any new runways. 

    Please ask your MP to support this proposal.

  • 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.
