Our policy work

Bike Life

We're collaborating with seven cities in the UK to report on progress towards making cycling an attractive and everyday means of travel. Bike Life is the biggest survey ever conducted on attitudes to cycling in the UK. The 2017 reports will be available on 14 November.

Policy Scan

Our Policy Scan is a regular summary of key policy thinking, reports, announcements, consultations and important dates.

Policy submissions

We seek to make contributions to assist in the development of all official policy and guidance relevant to walking, cycling and public transport. The policy submissions page contains current and past submissions.

The Network

The Network is a monthly e-newsletter that seeks to inform professional audiences about the breadth and depth of our work, and places it in the context of the wider political and policy agenda.

Evidence and related academic research

Explore some of the impacts of the work we do with different projects or browse robust academic research and evidence related to the benefits of sustainable and active travel.
