Transport for the North are using a scenarios approach to understand and respond to the future uncertainty of how people will interact with the transport system in the years ahead.

TfN’s Senior Major Roads Planning and Strategy Office, Simon McGlone, demonstrated in his keynote at TRANSPORT Smart Class, North of England 2021 how Future Travel Scenarios (including “Just About Managing”, “Prioritised Places”, “Digitally Distributed” and “Urban Zero Carbon” scenarios) have developed a shared understanding of the current and emerging complexity of the future of transport and created dynamic roadmaps which TfN will need to navigate when delivering their vision of a thriving North, where world class transport supports sustainable economic growth, excellent quality of life and improved opportunities for all, in line with the Northern Charter objectives. As well as enabling an agile approach to support TfN’s reaction to Covid-19, Simon outlined examples of Future Travel Scenarios application towards decarbonisation, EV charging infrastructure, transport planning, future mobility, future travel, spatial planning, and more!
