"As well as the online tools, transport improvements such as the
recently-opened A65 Quality Bus Corridor in Leeds, additional bus
lanes improved shelters and stop information on routes into
Wakefield City centre and the roll out of traffic light priority
for buses across West Yorkshire were also designed to make it
easier for people to travel without their car," said Metro Chairman
Cllr James Lewis.
"While for some types of journeys, the car will be the best
option, these initiatives and current projects such as the NGT
Trolleybus network, new rail stations at Apperley Bridge and
Kirkstall Forge, the new southern entrance to Leeds Rail Station,
smartcards, work towards a locally managed rail franchise for the
North, and the development of a better framework for West
Yorkshire's bus services through Quality Contracts, will help
provide people with an attractive, reliable alternative."
