To tackle the climate emergency, we need big changes in how we go about our daily lives, and investment to match the ambitions we have to reduce carbon emissions by 68% by 2030.

The TUC, our trade unions RMT, ASLEF, TSSA and Unite have worked with Transport for Quality of Life on a new report, Public transport fit for the climate emergency. The report sets out that the investment required could generate 140,000 direct jobs in public transport and hundreds of thousands more in construction and manufacture. Improving our public transport is not only about protecting our environment, it’s also about the quality of life in communities all over England and Wales.


  • Andy Burnham – Mayor, Greater Manchester
  • Mick Lynch – General Secretary, RMT
  • Mick Whelan -  General Secretary, ASLEF
  • Lisa Hopkinson – Transport for Quality of Life
  • Peter Pendle – Interim General Secretary, TSSA
  • Bobby Morton – National Officer, Unite
  • Kamaljeet Gill (Chair) – TUC

Join us to discuss the changes we need for the transport system and for the society we want.
