Helping authorities to control the cost of transport without compromising on safety or service
We are all well aware of the financial pressures facing councils year on year. The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) estimates that local authority budgets will reduce in real terms by 40% by 2018, yet many local authorities fail to fully address the excessive spend on transport.
Transport is an area of local authority activity that is often under the radar. Ideas, projects and thinking around transport are all too often limited within existing boundaries; consequently the trend is resulting in reductions in provision rather than improvements and movement to a more sustainable position.
Our Transformation Services team have been working with authorities to tackle the challanges in transport without compromising the service.
