CoHSAT survey quotes

What active-travel initiatives would you like to support in your local area?

We need an integrated transport system in our county that serves our communities. We should seize the opportunity to create sustainable transport hubs at Bicester and Islip that effectively link to other modes: cycling and electric buses in particular. We should make a big push on trains taking bikes! The rural parts of the county need reliable public transport services of reasonable frequency or the tendency will always be to rely on cars: we should look further at how best to foster and support local transport offers (including through liaison with volunteer groups). Generally, we should do more to encourage safe cycling: could there be a continuous cycle path alongside East West Rail?

Please summarise your views on the future for transport in Oxfordshire.

Oxford is a well-connected county that will become better connected by rail over the next 10 years. We need to build on this opportunity to increase the options for low-carbon transport and active transport for residents. However, we also have more remote rural areas that can be left out of integrated transport ideas that focus on our towns. A 15 minute neighbourhood is more challenging in rural areas. We need to include those communities in the conversation. We also need to reflect on the impact of COVID and what it means for public transport and public confidence to use it; especially if restrictions are required for some time to come.
